We have over 15 years experience designing progressive food system strategies, policies, and programs. We work collaboratively to explore creative solutions to advance just food system transitions for sustainability - combining our technical expertise, originality, and open-mindedness with skills in policy synthesis, strategy development, project management, and creative facilitation. We believe that cultivating healthy, regenerative, and fair food systems requires a participatory and systems-based approach.
Bounded rationality means that people make quite reasonable decisions based on the information they have. But they don't have perfect information, especially about more distant parts of the system ... Grant us the serenity to exercise our bounded rationality freely in systems that are structured appropriately, the courage to restructure the systems that aren't, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Foodways is based on Boon Wurrung Country in the Melbourne foodshed. In the spirit of reconciliation, we respectfully acknowledge the Elders, families, and forebears of the Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation who are the traditional custodians of the unceded lands where we work. We express our gratitude in the sharing of these lands, our sorrow for the personal, spiritual, and cultural costs of that sharing, and our hope that we may walk together on a path of healing.
