The programme is once again being supported by Shaping Futures, providing funding for schools across the region to take part.*

This year we’re taking things online. Our usual in-person events have been turned into a series of Future Food Festival activities, including live online events, that you can deliver in-school, with lots of support from us.

The Future Food Festival
  • Future Food TED Talk
  • The Science and Scientists behind Vertical Farming
  • Start with Why
  • Double Diamond Thinking
  • Design Tips & Tricks
  • Telling your Story
