Messy notes & structured to-do’s


These are just some of the features of the RE-ADJUSTool, a board game for kick-starting meaningful conversations about urban food systems. Municipalities, food initiatives and food partnerships can use the RE-ADJUSTool for two purposes: To review and enhance their city’s current food policy objectives and measures in terms of social justice (evaluation), or to exchange and operationalise ideas about what social food initiatives and policy actions are needed in their city in the future (brainstorm). Through answering a set of questions about and scoring the twelve aspects outlined below, the participants around the table will get to know each other and draw up a reflexive, holistic and action-oriented summary together.
