Learning together
for food systems change

Welcome to glocolearning!

Glocolearning’ stands for global - local collaborative learning. We facilitate co-learning and co-creation processes to support food systems change. We have a background in food systems research and are trained in facilitation of complex processes. We leverage local knowledge, scientific evidence-base, and decision-support tools, to trigger creative thinking and action, and adapt change pathways as we learn.

Our services

We integrate a diversity of co-learning and co-creation processes, research, insights, tools and networks, that we can further tailor to your context and needs. Our services evolve as we learn ourselves.

Why glocolearning?

Food systems change is intertwined with climate, environmental, geo-political, and social-economic change. Many actors are involved and have a personal interest. But food connects us, as people, as nature, as complex systems. This makes food systems such a powerful entry point for systemic change towards more sustainability, equity, and well-being.

From studying how change happens, or doesn’t happen, we know that there is not one solution. A growing body of research shows that capacities such as learning, visioning, reflexivity, navigating across scales and responding to emergent processes or features, may be the most crucial for transformation towards enhanced sustainability.

Enabling inspiring, safe and motivating opportunities for co-learning and co-creation  processes between change-makers, sectors, and very different perspectives can contribute to food systems sustainability, equity and well-being.

Glocolearning hopes to lift each other up, contribute to human and structural capacity, courage, and mutual understanding.

What our  community  says

"I have been in many meetings and workshops during my career, but I have never been in such an inspiring process. It changes my views and I deeply appreciate the approach."

Stanley Muraguri

"The glocolearning approach is very innovative, creative and science-based at the same time. It is really something unique. It has been amazing to see how it enables people’s systems thinking, views and actions, and truly engages a diversity of people and backgrounds."

Charlotte Pedersen

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), Denmark

"The co-creation and co-learning approach has changed our thinking as we develop a portfolio of regenerative foodscapes. The glocolearning approach has brought fresh ideas, methods, and perspectives that have enabled us to move more towards our ultimate ambition of inclusive systems change."
