Purpose and goal
The purpose of the project was to contribute to the development of a circular, bio-based economy through reporting tools for SMEs within the food system. The aim was to enable actors to demonstrate their multi-capital contribution to regional, regenerative food systems and Agenda 2030. Other goals include: to accelerate organisational learning around value co-creation and integration; to provide conditions for including scientific knowledge about boundaries in the management towards sustainable development; and to provide a basis for auditing and place-based contracts.
Expected results and effects
The project has generated a first version of a reporting tool that helps food system actors to work in a transformative, holistic and universal way. Important insights have been gained regarding the translation of scientific sustainability research into a local, practical context. The project had the opportunity to contribute to the Royal Djurgården Society’s vision of a sustainable Baltic Sea cuisine and has received attention from the Rockefeller Foundation.
Planned approach and implementation
The process has been inspired by research on social-ecological innovations and their impact on system transformation. It is structured according to three themes; 1) Scale deep experience based cross-disciplinary learning and testing in a miniature of a regenerative food system, 2) Scale out co-learning with established organisations within the food system to gain practical feedback and to ensure that outcomes becomes broadly accepted and used, 3) Scale up co-learning with organisations and experts with the capacity to scale the outcomes of the project.
