Food Systems

coCreationcamp Food Systems conversations are centered on innovation, design and entrepreneurship. 

Food is everywhere, but … Where are Food Systems going? What is at stake? Who are helping shape and sustain Food Systems? These are the triggering questions which will allow contributors to bring insights from their localities, be it production, transformation or consumption patterns. From locavore signs to glocal trends, foodscape is at the crossroads of multiple practices and postures. Let’s co-explore these and shape and share the next. coCreationcamp is aiming to connect People and Place via Plate.

In 2022, we had an Insights Session in Brussels during the World Food Day, on October 16th, updating food innovation conversations based on the Food Transition Meet-ups. The voyage continues in Europe and in India. In December 2022, we are connecting foodscape with tech in Bengaluru (with the Bengaluru Design Festival) and art in Kochi (with the Kochi Design Week at the Kochi Muziris Biennale). In 2023, we are gathering foodpreneurs and food aficionados in Brussels for a coCreationcamp Food Systems workshop on February 4th, 2023. The cCc sessions and workshops happen “in real life”. Stay tuned via www.cocreationcamp.com – More to come in different locations and for now:

From everyday cuisine to chefs’ expertise, from agritech to urban farming, from precision fermentation to eating behaviours, food and food systems are at the crossroads of culture, society, sciences, policy, innovation, design, … driven by people on a planet in tension.

The coCreationcamp Food Systems series is exploring today’s questions for prototyping tomorrow’s foodscapes. We are exploring Food Systems Innovation topics with formats such as:

  • Insights Sessions – to align on foodscapes’ dimensions
  • One-day Workshop – to co-create roadmaps
  • Two-days Workshop – to co-prototype services-products

These activities allow to work on questions at stake, with multiple points of view, involving innovators, chefs, entrepreneurs, technologists and policy makers. These sessions and workshops take place in connection with events (World Design Capital, Creative Wallonia, innovation or entrepreneurs events, …) or in companies (tailor-made, focused on specific challenges). The journey began in 2012, during Helsinki 2012 World Design Capital and we are reactivating Food conversations in 2022. These took place via the Brussels Food Transition series and continue with Insights Sessions in Brussels, Bengaluru, Kochi.

In 2022, after the October 16th Insights Session in Brussels (World Food Day), we are meeting on November 29th at the 3rd Food Transition Meet-up set by Free pour Entreprendre at eFarmz, co-organised a.o. by Architempo. – It is “free” but registration is required – see https://www.cocreationcamp.com/cocreation/ccc/2022-ccc/food-transition/meet-up-food-transition-20221129/ (French-speaking event but we will be multilingual).

Food Systems are interconnected to many other systems. Food offers the first lens. Then, let’s frame and unframe, let’s zoom and unzoom.
