How to prepare for the challenge?

Drink Water, Sleep Well, and THINK CIRCULAR! Think about what drives you to behave in ways that protect the environment. How you were first exposed to sustainability regarding food systems, and how you would best be stimulated to introduce circular initiatives into your daily shopping and consumption behaviors. Now think about your peers and the ways they engage in certain behaviors, how can you educate these individuals, with the use of digital technologies, to adopt more sustainable behaviors in their daily lives?

Why is it important to find a solution to this challenge?

Food is part out our cultural identity, a conductor of social interactions, and essentially necessary for human survival. However, the importance given to food by the current food ecosystem is under-valued and this is evident by the linear, abundance, focused food supply chains, that threaten the Earth's natural resources. Therefore, it is important to harness emerging technologies in order to promote sustainable knowledge and food circularity amongst younger individuals, who can then disseminate this information amongst their peers and future generations. Transitioning from the current 'produce-use-dispose' methods is one of the most effective ways to ensure food security and nutrition for future generations.

What is the possible impact of a good solution?

- Stimulate discussions regarding exaggerated food waste. - Personalized learning experiences that truly engage young adults in promoting circular behaviors. - Innovative methods to recycle, or redistribute, food waste from local institutions.

What is the expected outcome of this challenge?

Digital initiatives to educate food ecosystem members on the topic of 'Urban Food Circularity' in order to secure a food system fit for the 21st century and beyond.
