BarnRaise 2017: Co-designing Sustainable Food Systems
Designers, community organizations, and topic experts team up to promote greater impact in the Chicago community.
- October 9 – October 11
BarnRaise is an impact-driven conference that connects designers, community-based organizations, topic experts, and participants to promote greater impact in the Chicago community. Multi-disciplinary teams will work together to discover common ground, unlock values, systemically approach the challenge, prototype ideas, and envision sustainable solutions.
This year’s BarnRaise challenge is co-designing sustainable food systems. By understanding food waste as a critical path to reduce environmental impact and inefficient financial investments, as well as a means for promoting social innovation, BarnRaise will become a platform for imagining a sustainable future for Chicago food systems.
