The food during the conference will be served in the conference entrance hall and is provided by Kvinnocenter i Bergsjön. The center is an international meeting place in the suburb of Bergsjön in Gothenburg. It is a nonprofit organisation for women, regardless of age, nationality, religious or political affiliation. Since its foundation in 1988, the center has grown and the number of members is constantly increasing. 20 countries are now represented, including Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Bosnia, Cape Verde, Finland, Iraq, Iran, Iceland, China, Croatia, Kurdistan, Lebanon, Macedonia, Norway, Pakistan, Serbia, Slovakia, Somalia, Sweden, Czech Republic, Turkey and Vietnam. For further information, visit http://kvinnocenterbergsjon.se/

Coffe and tea are served during the breaks in connection with the session rooms. Fruit will be available throughout the conference and is provided byResursrestaurangen (RR), which is a nonprofit organisation aiming to raise awareness about food waste to contribute to its lowering. By working with all kinds of food waste partners (producers, wholesalers, supermarkets, etc.), they collect food which would be thrown away even though perfectly consumable, prepare it and serve it at different events. Discussing the origin of this food and showing how it is easy to “upcycle” it raises much interest and exciting reactions.  RR holds workshops on different topics such as methods to preserve food (eg lactic fermentation). They try as much as possible to minimise their environmental impact by using CO2-neutral transportation and biodegradable materials. More than anything else, they want to create room for inspiration, creativity, exchange of ideas and knowledge while cooking saved food and eating it.
