Center for Natural Disasters and Emergencies (TRATWA / The RAFT)
In 2017, the TRATWA/The RAFT association took over a green space in front of the TimeSpace (Czasoprzestrzeń) building in Wroclaw, covering approximately about 10,000 m2. This space is being gradually converted to a community garden, a public place intended for the inhabitants of Wrocław, maintained by the TRATWA (The Raft) Association and volunteers. The community garden serves to integrate the residents and enable them to organize barbecues or picnics, and offer space for art exhibitions, workshops and outdoor sports. The garden is a permaculture garden, based on growing (edible) plants in harmony with nature.
The RAFT is now focusing on maturing activities that will help secure the vision of creating a positive political and social atmosphere at the garden. For example, a coordinator will be needed to maintain the overview of the garden and activities of volunteers and residents. Upscaling of some of the popular workshops is also being considered.

Info about the Innovators and the Innovation portraits Catalogue
FoodSHIFT 2030 aims to launch an ambitious citizen-driven transition of the European food system towards a low carbon circular future, including a shift to less meat and more plant based diets. This transition is necessary in order to address the pressing challenges for food and nutrition security, contribute to the EU commitment of reducing GHG emissions by at least 40% by 2030, and revitalize urban-rural linkages and partnerships.
To do so, it establishes FoodSHIFT Accelerator Labs for maturing, combining, upscaling and multiplying existing food system innovations across nine front-runner city-regions. In turn these innovations contribute to the FoodSHIFT vision.
An Innovation Catalogue called “Innovation Portraits” was created to snapshot each of the Food Innovations connected with each of the FoodSHIFT Accelerator Labs (FALs) across the 9 city regions.
Info about the Innovation Portraits Catalogue
The Innovation Catalogue will snapshot each of the Food Innovations connected with each of the FoodSHIFT Accelerator Labs (FALs) across the 9 city regions. Each FAL has a dedicated innovation focus and each chapter will present innovation cases from a particular FAL. For each of the innovations presented, a snapshot of the innovation concept and purpose will be given, alongside the key impacts the innovation has in relation to the FoodSHIFT Impact Pathways and the acceleration ambitions of the innovation.
In addition, each innovation portrait is also categorized according to its Innovation Dimension. These dimensions indicate what kind of innovation is being presented, and where in the value chain it plays a role. This is indicated by these tabs. The dimensions are defined as follows:
Product – Innovations in this category address new or updated products, including quality, safety and market impact.
Process – These innovations are relevant to new technologies for processing, logistical improvements, infrastructure and new/improved services.
Social – Innovations in this category are relevant to changes in behaviour (e.g. consumers/citizens), development of new relationships and inclusiveness.
Governance – The innovations address policy developments, including food planning, subsidies, taxing, certificates & labelling.
