Fit4Food: Transforming the system of promotion of healthy and sustainable diets in Barcelona
In order to improve how we address non-communicable diseases and climate change, we explore how to create the appropriate context for the transformation of the model of promotion of healthy and sustainable diets (HSD) in Barcelona. To do so, we have created a Community of Practice (CoP) with more than 45 organizations that iteratively meet in reflexive and mutual learning processes where they co-create knowledge on the current systemic complexity, on a future shared vision with a new model of HSD and on transformative initiatives. These initiatives aim to improve the current fragmented existing solutions and to stimulate the ideation and implementation of novel solutions that better respond to system complexity and to the needs and expectations of a wide variety of social actors both within and outside the scientific community.
The result is a CoP with a collective strategic and action plan that includes: A) networking activities aimed at organizations and networks for: systemic reflection and monitoring; innovation both in communication and in participation; adaptation of R&I to better respond to local needs; improvement of existing training activities; and developing and promoting new policy instruments. B) Innovative initiatives through a Community Food Centre being stablished as a system of peer cooperation where a wide variety of stakeholders promote innovation, not only in their organizational models but also in the focus of their interventions, that will become more systemic, and will therefore focus on health and environmental sustainability with changes in different areas of the system.
