Third Global Foresight4Food Workshop Report

Montpellier 7 – 9 March, 2023 – More than 50 members of the Foresight4Food network gathered in Montpellier for the Third Global Foresight4Food Workshop to discuss the topic of foresight for food systems transformation. In a dynamic setting, participants learned, exchanged and developed actions focused on how to support foresight for national food system transformation pathways.

Despite challenges related to strikes in France, many people made the effort to join us. It was a successful gathering to strengthen partnerships between practitioners, users and stakeholders of foresight. We debated key dilemmas faced when initiating foresight and food systems work. We explored ways to enhance ways of improving quality and impact of foresight approaches, and how to integrate qualitative and quantitative methods. Finally, all participants contributed to the ways forward for the Foresight4Food network and the FoSTr programme.

The report details and captures a glimpse of the wealth of contributions and insights with a rich pallet of exchanges were on offer throughout the three days.
