Transformations to Sustainable Food Systems in Brighton and Hove: Towards a Shared Research Agenda

Published on 1 January 2017

This document outlines initial thoughts regarding a possible associated research project on transformations to sustainable food systems in Brighton and Hove, based on discussions at a co-design workshop held in Brighton on 21st January 2015. As well as members from the STEPS Centre and Stockholm Resilience Centre, both members of the ISSC seed-funded ‘Constructing Pathways to Sustainability’ network, the event brought together stakeholders from local, national and international levels. These included academic networks associated with the ARTS project (Accelerating and Rescaling Transitions towards Sustainability), SLRG (the Sustainable Lifestyles Research Group), BSUFN (Brighton and Sussex Universities Food Network) and researchers at the two institutions at the University of Sussex that make up STEPS (SPRU – Science Policy Research Unit and the Institute of Development Studies). It also included representatives of local firms, growers (both independent and from community groups) and civil society organisations.
