Programme overview

Creativity & Innovation for Sustainable Food Systems: Micro-credential

Rethinking current food systems is an urgent priority in order to address numerous challenges such as climate change, ageing population, poor diet-related health outcomes and food waste.

The problems are complex and it is necessary for stakeholders along the food chain to think and act differently, and to identify opportunities for change, whether this is new product development, improved services or business models. There is a need to think and act with a more creative, innovative mindset.

In this micro-credential, you will have a chance to explore and develop new approaches to creativity and innovation and to reflect upon and re-imagine your own practice of creative thinking, which can be applied in both your personal and/or professional practices. The aim of the micro-credential is to help you to access your innate ability for independent creative thinking and innovation in its broadest sense and to develop an innovation mindset in exploring ideas.

We draw upon the Design Thinking framework in learning how to work through a process of understanding your user/customer, generating ideas, prototyping and testing.
