The Challenge asks us to consider ways to improve and enhance the relationships and interactions between producers and consumers, rural and urban communities, growers and retailers, retailers and consumers. We'd like the community to consider issues such as energy use , transportation , biodiversity , food security , nutrition , obesity , the health of rural economies and the strength of inter-generational and intercultural knowledge sharing .
At the heart of this challenge lie issues of global sustainability and local happiness to improve life for rural and urban communities. We hope to cast a wide net for inspirations and concepts that will address the challenge in a holistic way. Think about new services, campaigns, policies, products, systems that could address these issues.
The concepts that we c reate together through this process will be as good or as bad as the community that gets involved. Please do share what we’re up to in your social networks and if you're on Twitter you can use our hashtag #oi_localfood
