A collaboration between The University of Manchester, Edinburgh University, Essex University, Lancaster University and Leeds University with Fellowships based at Cardiff University, Queens University Belfast and The University of Salford
Using a combination of ethnographic research and semi-structured interviews, this fellowship will focus on how a local food network, a democratically owned and run social enterprise in Stroud, has been able to change the day-to-day food consumption practices, habits and knowledges of its membership. A case of meso-level reorganisation, attention will be paid to how an emphasis on member participation and community building can aid sustainable behaviour change.
