Drawing inspiration from the three horizons approach to futuring, we have developed three alternative scenarios for the future of urban food sharing in 2050 using data from five years of in-depth international research, as well as findings from the multistakeholder 2019 SHARING FUTURES workshop.
In collaboration with RIVA Illustrations and illustrator Fiammetta Ghedini, we created visualisations of these three different future scenarios for urban food sharing: Desirable, Business As Usual and Technical Fix.
Each scenario image* can be seen below:
SHARECITY’s Food Sharing Futures work provides a novel means to create dialogue and foster engagement on urban food sharing sustainability issues with a particular focus on the regulatory and policy regimes which will be a powerful shaping force on those issues in the future. We are engaging with policy makers to evaluate whether our visualisations of future scenarios help support different kinds of debate around creating a supportive environment for sustainable urban food sharing. We are also using our visualisations to engage young people in discussions about sustainable urban food sharing futures. You can read about our initial youth engagement here.
