Join us for AFSA Solidarity Economies Session #2 talking collaboration and co-operation with the food systems game-changers at Open Food Network.
Jen Sheridan of OFN Australia and Lynne Davis of OFN UK chat to Nick about OFN’s work in building and growing collaborative economies – connecting growers with each other and their eaters, harnessing logistics, and how the network provided critical infrastructure for farmers and eaters during the current crisis.
This discussion provides excellent insight on how OFN’s focus on transparency, solidarity, and collaboration created common-good tech infrastructure to address the problems in traditional supply chains, and how that approach can be applied in practice across organisations and projects to build systems that foster trust and connections throughout the supply chain.
