The advanced learning program designed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations [FAO] and the Future Food Institute [FFI], includes hands-on experiences supported by a series of e-learning courses, made to transfer knowledge, skills, and competencies to strengthen the capacities of the food system professionals of today and tomorrow.
The participants will understand the interrelatedness of production and consumption. They will be able to develop a sustainability mindset ready to address the greatest challenges of our era, evaluate problem-solving strategies, and design experience and science-based solutions.
Learning by exploring the entire food value chain
Environment – Innovating food production models based on climate-conscious, smart marine, land and non-soil systems
Production – Discovering new technologies for the domestic and industrial transformation of food products; playing, co-designing and prototyping about the role of “food” and its lifecycle in the modern society: the epicenter of the Circular Systems
Access – Finding the best solutions against malnutrition and creating new tools to guarantee food safety
Nourishment – Experimenting with healthy and nutritious food, by preserving our culture and improving the food experience, strengthening biodiversity
Eating Lifestyle – Conceiving and enhancing the Food Experience through a focus on UX in new spaces and models of consumption
Awareness – Exploiting the potential of data to implement business growth
The platform comprises three distinct training “experiences”: inspiration, aspiration, and action.
80 LOCAL HEROES
80 OPPORTUNITIES OF LEARNING
With local discoveries, we have learned the importance of being able to find those local heroes, ordinary people capable of doing extraordinary things. It’s our responsibility to give voice to their stories, tell them to the world and share them so that they can be a source of inspiration for the community! Connecting not just individual participants, but participants and their community with the world.
A tool to learn on the ground from true role models, but also to strengthen the relationship between the Climate Shapers and their own communities.
