- Increase access to nourishing, culturally appropriate and affordable food
- Reduce diet-health related issues and shift to sustainable consumption patterns
- Increase urban farming and gardening
- Reduce the environmental footprint (e.g. waste, greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, pollution, land) of London’s Food System
- Increase resilience and diversity in food supply (e.g. diversity of food sources, seasonal procurement, working with other cities)
- Increase job opportunities in the food sector for communities most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic
In the Idea-Generating Workshop you will be supported to develop an idea for your own social business, get to know others working in similar areas, and learn more about Feeding the City.
Using concrete tools, you will be helped to think through important elements of your idea in a structured way and to identify blind spots. You will also receive valuable feedback and learn which criteria are important in the submission. Even those without a concrete idea are welcome!
