Lifeworlds of Sustainable Food Consumption and Production: Agrifood Systems in Transition
Steven R. MCGREEVY, RIHN
Area : Japan, China, Thailand, Bhutan
How can we create ecologically and socially sustainable agrifood systems? Taking a bottom-up, action research approach, this project seeks to initiate sustainable agrifood transition through the creation of new communities of social practice and collective action with stakeholders ranged along global and local food chains, at locations in Japan, China, Thailand, and Bhutan. Novel methodological approaches including participatory foodshed mapping and social practice backcasting will be employed, and consumer-oriented tools will be developed (food LCA app, local eco-brand).
