The Beginning of our Journey to Transform the Food System

Where are the bright spots in sustainable farming and food systems in Mexico?

In our recent Future Food Systems Summits, held in Puebla, Oaxaca and Mexico City in November 2023, we  brought together a diverse group of food system change makers. This summit provided a unique platform for networking, identifying common goals, and developing actionable plans for a brighter future.

Thank you for being a part of this transformative experience!

Highlights of the Summit:

As part of a participatory research project, we are offering a 2-day Future Food Systems Summit series for food system professionals and community members.

Day 1

Visioning workshop

Together, participants crafted an inspiring visions for the future food system, discussing the values they share that underlie this vision.

Day 2

Knowledge Sharing and Networking Session

Participants shared their knowledge and skills in [grant writing, etc]. They also embarked on excursions to highlighted organisations actively working towards sustainable solutions.

How can we work together to make just and sustainable food systems a reality?

The Journey Continues!

In the next step of the project, we are identifying indicators that will help us track progress towards the shared vision. We will then map the indicators to find “bright spots”.  Stay tuned here for future updates, and follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn.
