Food Sharing Futures

Food Sharing Futures

The final phase of SHARECITY, in 2020 and 2021, will consider the future of food sharing in cities. This work will analyse emerging trends, and explore the future challenges and opportunities for ICT mediated food sharing in urban environments.

SHARECITY will employ methodologies of futuring and horizon scanning methods in order to explore emerging trends around ICT facilitated food sharing in urban contexts. What are the potential challenges and opportunities for the future for food sharing?

Based on this exploration, SHARECITY will develop different potential scenarios for what urban food systems might look in the future. Some scenarios will be more sustainable, just and therefore more desirable – providing important social and environmental benefits within our cities. Realising these more positive futures means taking action now in the present. In this, SHARECITY also draws on previous insights from the CONSENSUS project (see video below) and the use of backcasting to identify what steps to take now, to realise more sustainable and just future food systems, in which food sharing plays an important role.
