We welcome you to share your thoughts on fair food futures
In the context of growing hunger and an increasingly unjust food system, and in light of tensions around corporate capture of food systems everywhere, it is more important than ever that the voices of the ‘fair food’ movement are heard. Part-research study, part-action plan, this project uses a co-designed approach to improving people’s participation in food systems debates, planning and policy making.
Building on lessons from the recent UN Food Systems Summit – highlighting the importance of localising food systems transformation and the key role of civil society – this project also provides a forum for researchers, policymakers and civic food representatives to discuss opportunities for translating the scenarios into action.
Following the launch of four future scenarios for reducing hunger in the Australian food system in July 2022, we invite you to tell us what you think about the findings.
In what ways do the 4 scenarios and 4 pathways reflect your hopes for the future of food? How can civic food organisations build power to transform the food system? Where are the key opportunities, and where are the challenges?
