Food security describes the global challenge of ensuring everyone has access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and preferences for an active and healthy life.
Although the BigPicnic team includes a range of organisations with different specialisations, the majority of them are botanic gardens, chosen for their expertise in plant science and public engagement.
BigPicnic Partners use co-creation to develop exhibitions and events in collaboration with their communities and stakeholders, combining expertise to produce relevant and engaging activities on food security.
Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) aims to align the outcomes of scientific and technological advances with the values and needs of society by involving diverse groups of people throughout the entire process.
Team-Based Inquiry (TBI) enables BigPicnic Partners to reflect on their work using a practical approach to data collection and evaluation, built on a cycle of question, investigate, reflect and improve.
