What we're about

A healthy food culture connects the economy, the environment and society, and is a vehicle for sustainable positive change. It can create opportunities, bring people together, increase productivity, grow employment, protect the environment, improve our everyday lives, support better health and wellbeing, and much, much more. A healthy food culture equals a healthy living world.

Food Culture Forum is for industry professionals striving to fix the future through food. It’s a peer support space for sharing ideas and answers that can connect long-term needs with today’s everyday practices.

What if chefs had easy access to teachers, to improve behaviour and attention spans? What if farmers had easy access to environmentalists, to adopt more eco-friendly practices? What if community growers had easy access to architects, to build in spaces for micro-agriculture from the start? What if property developers planned kitchens to encourage more cooking and less waste? What if we could help these progressive conversations happen every day, and iron out the obstacles to positive change?

I started this group to share my research and connect conversations across society, industry, communication, the built environment and the living world. Based in the UK, I'm keen to see where members come from and plan events accordingly, so please sign up and we'll move forward together.

I look forward to meeting you!

Food Culture Design Safari at Clerkenwell Design Week

Design and the built environment are intrinsically linked to a healthy food culture, with many progressive products and materials now based on recycling, food waste, circular economy, renewable/low-impact materials, and biophilic design. Clerkenwell Design Week is an annual show that highlights cutting-edge design innovation, and a great opportunity for us to see how designers are supporting these themes. Let's gather with a coffee then take a walk through the neighbourhood to see what exciting products we can find that are helping solve problems and can inspire forward-thinking projects and partnerships. Register below for a Clerkenwell badge, and if you have any questions just comment below. See you there! https://www.clerkenwelldesignweek.com
