Back to Land Lab

Sustainable land use and food chain strategies for young entrepreneurs building on social innovation in food systems





Coastal, Urban, Rural


About the ‘Back to Land’ Lab

The Bari FoodSHIFT Accelerator Lab will encourage youth entrepreneurship and job creation through targeted capacity building services and education with an existing incubator. It will focus on testing the feasibility of the new entrepreneurs’ innovative and sustainable solutions, linking them to a renewed short food chain model (linking production, processing, distribution and consumption) The lab will support the ethical and responsible reuse of abandoned lands in the Bari area for use in social and technological food system innovation.


Through the development of events, tool kits and resources in collaboration with research partners, the FoodSHIFT Accelerator Labs will share their approaches and inspire us all to join a food systems shift.
