November Salon: Finding Higher Ground

Is your local collaborative generating the new ideas and initiatives needed to create breakthrough change? Is it a place where you routinely go beyond the mythical ‘low-hanging fruit’ to address the deep systemic breakdowns in democracy and economy that characterize the food system today? In this provocative one-hour presentation, Joseph McIntyre, Executive Director of Ag Innovations Network shared the latest ‘social technology’ for turning groups into effective innovation engines. Participants explored a new model for problem-solving, new ways to think about the role and potential for food system collaboratives, and shared a set of best practices for innovation he developed over the course of 10+ years facilitating food system change.
