Exploration space @ ACDH-AAS against unite innovators, impact future, act today invited for the first time people with knowledge in the Humanities to join CERN THEPort-Humanitarian Hackathon. It aimed at prototype a modular structure enhancing the analysis and understanding of knowledge systems, connecting food and its different cultures with the SDGs.

During THEPort2018, an interdisciplinary team addressed the Humanitarian challenge of obesity to fill a knowledge gap. Better knowledge about eating behaviour is core to acting properly, supporting behavioural changes. In addition, cultural knowledge and experience may allow to support better decision making processes.

The paper showcases the hackathon result: a design study of the OrbEat application, aiming to increase the knowledge about individuals’ eating behaviour and support behavioural change in a sustainable way, against the background of nutritionists’ knowledge, facilitated by neuroscientific insights (EEG).

In this paper, the development of ‘Residencies’ is described; a suite of research methods designed to meet the urgent methodological needs of a new wave of fashion and sustainability discourse focused on societal and structural change. An interdisciplinary approach drawn from cultural geography, art and design aims to chart complex and often overlooked dynamics of clothing behaviours as they take place in everyday life, intricately linked to the context they take place in.

Effective transformation towards sustainability in fashion has been limited by the dominance of technocentric approaches, disconnected from the social context of people’s lives or the realities of planetary boundaries. In line with a growing international move to re-prioritise social and human concerns in sustainable development work, Residencies offers potential new ways to identify and visualise social patterns, material flows and interactions. This is to enable future research outcomes identifying potentials for systemic transformation.

Craft beer is the fastest growing network of enterprises in the craft food and beverage sector of Manitoba, Canada. Craft breweries are emerging as a space that potentially links urban consumers to rural producers through ingredient sourcing chains. Our research considers whether craft breweries are resulting in small, local, open and connected (SLOC) craft food and beverage systems.

Through a series of interviews with craft brewers we found that there is a desire to source ingredients locally but that barriers exist. Challenges include a lack of consistent supply of regionally produced quality ingredients and the industrial scale of malting barley, which makes it difficult to preserve the identity of barley produced by small farmers. While craft brewers are supportive of a sourcing network linked to farmers in the region, this transition requires attention to adequately scaled malting enterprises and increased production by farmers of hops and barley in the region.
