Community-University Food Links

Exploring options for collaboration
Brighton, 15 April 2013
Along with the Brighton and Hove Food Partnership and Elona Hoover at Brighton University, Rachael Durrant and Rebecca White of the SLRG ran a day long workshop looking at community-university links around sustainable food systems on the 15th of April. It was attended by 30 people representing civil society organisations, grassroots community groups, Sussex and Brighton Universities, the County Council and food enterprises. Through a series of exercises everyone enthusiastically explored their needs, desires and concerns about what stronger links between universities and local organisations working on food might look like and how they might work. We aim to foster strong relationships productive of positive social change in the food system, and this was a really good start towards making that a reality.
