Innovate solutions to social food problems! With the input of creatives–including interaction and product designers–alongside grassroots, gastronomic experts within the Slow Food Youth Network, you can impact future food initiatives! SFYN Tank is an experimental event aimed at squaring open-exchange of expertise at the center of food activism. Aimed at anyone in grassroots food work or creative sectors, we hope to engage food enthusiasts in collective problem-solving through design-thinking. Come attend our full day social-design workshop on September 24th, 2016 to employ a multidisciplinary approach that encompasses research, storytelling, idea-generation, and prototyping with a critical design eye to solve nine social problems our food system faces–from shifting our idea of seafood consumption to democratizing food communication. Through open-exchange of expertise, out-of-the-box thinking, and a design approach, we truly can make meaningful impact on our global food system.
