Sydney Urban Food Innovation Pathways
About: Sydney Urban Food Innovation Pathways
This research project was designed to pilot a holistic conceptual mapping to capture stories of urban food system innovation in the City of Sydney local government area.
The Sydney project is part of a larger project Mapping Urban-Driven Innovations for Sustainable Food Systems that drew directly on methodology developed by the global URBAL project team. This methodology aimed at capturing and creating links between innovators, policy-makers, researchers and funders.
Specifically, this methodology considers urban food innovation as social process and examines the social factors that contribute to food innovation success. That is –what are the relationships, networks, policies, learning, support systems created and experienced by humans that lead to food innovation
