A scenario building experiment for LateLab Open Sauces, where we use futures techniques to look at how food, wellness and the environment might evolve in the future.

  • We began by defining the context for latelab open sauces: The region is Scotland/North-western Europe. The focus is on the relationship of food, wellness and the environment (including growing, producing, distributing, consuming, tasting and disposing of food). The context is a science festival, public understanding of science, looking at food systems and cycles, as well as infrastructure. The timescale is 0-60 years in the future.
  • We looked at a range of change drivers or food horizons (using horizon scanning and CLA to determine drivers)
  • Based on the drivers and CLA derived myths we created four food scenarios (using 'four generic futures' method of the Manoa School)
  • Finally translated each scenario into a series of dishes, combined according to the panarchy model into the flow for the latelab menu
