The Sustainable Food Laboratory: Design Studio


The Salzburg Seminar is collaborating with the Sustainable Food Laboratory, a project of the Global Leadership Initiative, and hosting the Design Studio phase of the project. The purpose of the Sustainable Food Laboratory is to accelerate the movement of sustainably-produced food from niche to mainstream. The Food Lab will create "living examples" of sustainable supply chains - not just reports or proposals. These prototypes and pilots will be supply chains that can become mainstream and profitable for all actors in the chain. Many will involve partnerships between government, farmers and civil society. The Design Studio will be used to refine and kick-off the prototype projects.

Please note that this session is by invitation only.
