“This project explores how new algorithmic technologies could be used to create a fairer and more sustainable food system.

We’re looking at two areas in detail:

The “food commons”
How can food be locally produced and managed more equitably and sustainably for collective benefit? Our project explores this question by working with small-scale urban community growers, including city farms.

A “more-than-human value system”
To grow food successfully, humans require the help of other organisms – for example bees, or soil micro-organisms. How can we use new technologies to recognise and value their contributions, to help avoid problems like soil degradation and bee extinction that threaten life on earth?”
