Description of services

“The glocolearning approach is very innovative, creative and science-based at the same time.”

Charlotte Pedersen
The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), Denmark

We apply our scientific knowledge in a flexible and adaptable way to address the unique needs of our clients. We don't come with a one-size-fits-all solution; instead, we work alongside you, recognizing your strengths and potential barriers. We use a range of materials that are contextualized and tailored to the setting. We do not work based on the premise that , “We know how you should do it.” Rather we begin with, “These are the things you seem to be doing right. Let’s build on that.”

Visioning

Visioning workshops are designed to encourage participants to dream or envision a future that transcends the constraints of today's complex food systems. In a world often burdened by pressing challenges such as climate change and food insecurity, the transformative potential of envisioning a brighter future is often overlooked. These workshops centered around proactive listening and intercultural communication skills to shift perspectives and dream beyond the current paradigms in our food environments. Whether it involves co-creating a vision for a sustainable hydroponic farm, engaging in mutual learning through a two-way mentorship, or collaborating as a multi-stakeholder group to identify the key elements of change necessary to achieve our target vision, these exercises are intended to help us collectively develop visions that extend beyond what may seem initially achievable.

Action roadmap

While having a clear vision is essential, the path to achieving it can often be complex and challenging. Support for Action Roadmapping is a service that to transform your vision into tangible steps. Going beyond the surface, these workshops include building a pathway-to-impact backcasting map, anticipating accelerators to address potential obstacles, developing a game-changing sustainable business model, and illustrating the relationships and feedback loops within a complex system using causal loop diagrams. This approach utilizes open-access tools and resources and is customized to facilitate food systems transformation toward positive, concrete, sustainable, and equitable impact.

Adapting tracks

Creating tangible and lasting impact within your food system demands a systematic approach. 'Strategy & Planning for Changing Tracks' is designed to facilitate long-term practice change in this transformative journey. By bringing together key food system stakeholders and employing a rigorous, science-based research approach, the primary goal of this service is to reach the theory of change. This service encompasses various facilitated strategy and planning methodologies, including a Theory of Change, Delphi Study, a robust Monitoring and Evaluation strategy, or an Innovation Accelerator Program, depending on specific requests. The aim of this service is not only to envision transformative change but also to strategically and systematically plan, implement, and experience real impact.

NEW service: Co-learning on food systems-based dietary guidelines

A wide range of stakeholders have called for the need for the integration of environmental sustainability considerations in national food-based dietary guidelines (FBDGs). We support co-learning research based on FBDGs that can encompass a wide range of topics, including assessment of diet quality, interventions and outcomes, socio-economic disparities, behavioural factors, and environmental impact. We also support co-learning to adapt national FBDGs to regional or sub-regional levels based on agroecology, lifestyle, culture and other food systems related factors. A third major service we offer in this area is to help to translate the FBDGs into learning materials for agriculture experts, health professionals, nutrition professionals, elementary and secondary school teachers and students, and as advocacy tools to inform program and policy.
