Spokes resource
April 2021 - 'How can I run a food lab or living lab. I would like to train people on food system transformation. What do I do?' These are just a few of the questions that the FIT4FOOD2030 Knowledge Hub tries to answer for a variety of users, from civil society organisations to policy makers to facilitators in science engagement organisations. It gathers tools for working with communities and different publics on the topic of food systems and transformation in a one-stop shop. These resources have been tried and tested throughout the three year lifespan of the project.

December 2020 - The Space Talks online series took place on the 27th November, 1-2 December 2020 and were attended by 39 participants. It was a great opportunity to reconnect with Ecsite Space Group members and welcome some new participants despite the physical distance imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. It consisted of informal networking, projects showcase and news sharing session on some very exciting current and upcoming activities from the European Space Agency. It was an inspiring experience providing a good opportunity to reflect and connect.
