Barcelona FAL FoodTech 3.0 will represent FoodSHIFT 2030 at re:publica!
6 June, 11:15 – 12:15
Let’s re-imagine our food system. In this workshop, participants will explore how citizens, together with maker spaces, Fab Labs and Fab Cities, can support distributed, social food hubs. Using a future(s) design tool and supporting e-book, we’ll reflect on innovative paths to reclaiming the food system.
Fab Labs and Fab Cities can support the development of food initiatives and design collective visions to re-imagine and co-create the food system. In this workshop, supported by the Distributed Design Platform, participants will use a future design tool and a supporting ebook to explore how to harness makerspaces, Fab Labs or Fab Cities to create a distributed network of social food hubs. This workshop is for citizens who want to reclaim our food system, food innovators who are designing ways to do it and makerspace, Fab Lab or Fab City participants that design spaces to recuperate the food system.

The workshop is split into three sections:
(1) An introduction to the Food Tech 3.0 Gitbook, a tool on how makerspaces, Fab Labs and Fab Cities can support the development of food initiatives, including tools and best practices for innovators and communities.
(2) A creative visioning session in which participants collectively imagine their future, distributed and resilient food system
(3) Sharing visions to discover ways that makerspaces, Fab Labs and Fab Cities can support distributed social food hubs. Citizens and initiatives are fighting to reclaim the food system, bringing us closer towards food citizenship and security.
Meanwhile, as spaces to design and prototype bottom-up tech and build capacity in communities, Fab Labs can support the development of open, community-centered and distributed food initiatives while Fab Cities can help envision new realities, employ initiatives and drive policy toward a regenerative and ecosystemic food system. This workshop provides a space for participants to envision a future, distributed, and resilient food system and to explore ways to create social food hubs through Fab Labs and Fab Cities.
The workshop is supported by the Distributed Design Platform, an exchange and networking hub for the emerging field of distributed design, and FoodSHIFT2030, a H2020 EU project putting citizens at the center of the food system shift.
Track: Urban Spaces & Rural Spaces
In this track, we’ll talk about places to live, work, and everything in between and how we get from one place to another. We look for solutions that create a green, social and connected framework for public space. We’re asking how we want to live and reside together and which role technology plays here. The track includes topics like livable cities and urban design, resilience and adaptation, regenerative agriculture and new supply chain models for food, inclusivity and access, data-driven transportation systems, the future and monetarization of mobility business models, safety and security of infrastructure, demographics and their demands on living space and co-design of technical solutions.
