Food Citizenship: Influencing Agenda Hack

26 September 2017 09:00 - 26 September 2017 13:00
Central London TBC

How can NGOs come together to move the Food Citizenship agenda forward?

Following the successful Future of Food collaborative innovation process we undertook in 2016/17, the New Citizenship Project and Food Ethics Council are working together to host an open hack session for food NGOs. We believe there is a major opportunity for our food system in the shift from a Consumer to a Citizen Mindset, and we want to open the conversation to explore how we might work together to develop an influencing agenda rooted in this way of thinking.

The critical point here is that we will not be asking questions about how we can make people care, or how we can achieve small specific behaviour changes (though this work is important), but how we can shift the basis on which policy decisions - both in government and organisations - are made, seeking involvement and participation from as many people as possible, not expecting consumption decisions alone to represent public opinion.
We will design a process which will enable attendees from all sorts of organisations to share ideas and challenges for this aspiration. stimulating the conversation with initial creative thinking. Participants will come away excited and inspired - and hopefully with a new opportunity for 2018 on their hands.
