Collaboration with the Centre for Complex Systems in Transition

The Centre for Complex Systems in Transition and SAFL convened a learning exchange on the 21st of July 2016 in Stellenbosch on alternative visions of the food system in South Africa.

The event brought together a diverse group of actors from the Western Cape food system – from academia, government, business and civil society – to participate in an open dialogue about future configurations of this system.


Several learning journeys were arranged to stimulate thinking about alternative, more positive visions, of the food system.

A recent blog captures this exchange:
