Creative Food Cycles Online Symposium

17 – 18 September 2020 | HANNOVER, GERMANY
Leibniz Universität Hannover

How can FOOD CYCLES enhance urban resilience? 
How can FOOD CYCLES become a major field for social innovation?
How can digital technologies innovate FOOD CYCLES? 

Creative Food Cycles Symposium presents and discusses innovative and creative scientific contributions in the transformation of space and society for creating sustainable futures through food cultures, particularly connected to creative performances, responsive digital technologies, co-creation of change.

The Symposium is aimed at an international academic audience, exploring novel ideas, knowledge and practices in addressing the manifold linkages of food-creativity-space together with project partners, representatives of international institutions, invited experts and key-note speakers. Hence, it will establish a common ground to contribute to the debate on circular economy and collaborative cities in Europe, to implement the objectives of the EU Urban Agenda and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The Symposium will be organized in the following sessions:

1. CREATIVE FOOD CYCLES AS DRIVER FOR URBAN RESILIENCE

Fostering novel and adaptive Food Cycles as driver for future resilience in economy, society, and culture.

2. CREATIVE FOOD CYCLES AS SOCIAL INNOVATION

Extending civic participation in Food Cycles toward active engagement, new urban communities, and new models of social entrepreneurship.

3. CREATIVE FOOD CYCLES BASED ON DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES

Experimenting with interactive devices and digital protocols with a strong cultural and social impact, as an empowering force of Food Cycles.

Creative Food Cycles is a project organised by the Institute of Urban Design and Planning of Leibniz University Hannover (Germany), the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia IAAC in Barcelona (Spain), and the Department of Architecture and Design of the University of Genoa (Italy). The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the EU.
