The project was to educate and engage 60 families and changemakers as part of their 6 week sustainable course initiated by the county of Gothenburg. A number of stations were put up portraying common misconceptions about sustainability. The participants got to familiarise with how norms keep guiding our lives. As always we presented concrete examples that have a positive impact.
Event / food fair
On numerous occasions we have been asked to represent new food products to a a wider audience through playful labs. This has grown to be very appreciated for smaller producers to get their voice heard and a great way of introducing a new concept from a well established brand.
