CO-LAB 2.0 explored the themes of food and community. Applying our collective ‘kitchen and whole ingredient thinking’ to envision a food system that better serves public health using seed, soil and British sunshine. Through a series of panel discussions and conversations, we will shared stories about food action in our local community, heard about partnerships for change and used this to stimulate ideas for transforming our food system from the ground up across the West Midlands (and beyond).

CO-LAB is a flexible sharing forum for researchers, teachers and practitioners of all levels of experience and their community partners. It is hosted by the Warwick Institute of Engagement’s Co-Production and Communities Learning Circle with an aim to share best practice, discuss challenges and explore and develop the ways in which we co-design, collaborate and co-produce things. Most of all, it is a relaxed and social space to come together and share, network, learn and explore various forms of collaborative, co-produced and co-designed work in a supportive environment. CO-LAB is a public event that is open to all.

The event is structured around moments to listen, to network, to learn and to share conversations and connect over food. Lunch will be provided upon arrival.
