We will introduce our motivations behind the development and visualisation of alternative future scenarios for urban food sharing derived from SHARECITY research. This is driven by 1) a desire to destabilize the view that futuringis an elite activity, led by industrialists or technologists rather than everyday citizens, and 2) a desire to explore novel means for engaging differently with policy makers -who play a key role in shaping food sharing practices -about the challenges and opportunities for sustainable food sharing. We will outline the pilot study we conducted in May with Transition year students in Dublin and set out our plan for wider engagement with young people and policy makers.
