Collaborative Workshops

Throughout the duration of the project SHARECITY will be holding a number of collaborative workshops.

Collaborative Workshop 1: Krautsourcing Ideas for Food Sharing in Singapore

Together with Fermentation GutHub and Foodscape Collective, we organized a workshop on food sharing in the HackerspaceSG. The idea of the workshop came about in conversations about food sharing in the context of smart city with designer and NUS researcher Marketa Dolejsova. Focusing specifically on food as a medium and sharing as a collaborative urban practice we addressed the questions :

  • What kind of food and related knowledge resources have people traditionally shared and how is this changing in the smart city context?
  • Which food sharing technologies are out there, who is using them and for what ends?
  • What policies, initiatives and ways of collaborating shape food sharing in smart cities?
  • What are the social, economic and environmental impacts of smart food sharing?

You can find out more about this outcomes in the blog post Krautsourcing Ideas for Food Sharing in Singapore.

Collaborative Workshop 2: SHARECITY Sharing Cafés

In September and October the SHARECITY team ran two international co-design workshops inspired by the world café participatory mechanism. The first of these took place in Trinity College in Dublin, and the second at the European Roundtable for Sustainable Consumption and Production (ERSCP) on the beautiful island of Skiathos in Greece. With participants hailing from around the world the workshops brought together people from different backgrounds and with different experiences to talk about their encounters with food sharing, to brainstorm around the ways in which we might be able to identify the impacts of food sharing, and to think through what supports might be needed to help food sharing work towards sustainability.
