Alternative Solutions: Food Security, Healthy Community, Shared profits

Being the essential condition for humans to survive, food has become the priority for national governments and global markets.

However, the global food system faces more demand for food than is being produced, while waste and pollution threatens food safety.

In this workshop, a group of social science researchers and food practitioners will present alternative solutions to the standard models of food production and consumption, which will illustrate how local, national and international initiatives respond to the demand for food security.

The programme is inspired by successful community-oriented business models, such as social enterprise, community of interest and cooperatives, which put social and educational benefits first and also know how to generate economic income to support their values.
