AKSHAYA PATRA CONDUCTS SUCCESSFUL SIDE EVENT AT THE EAT FORUM IN SWEDEN
With support from the Ford Foundation, we convened 15 experts in nutrition and education for a three hour session on Human-Centered Design thinking to positively impact the lives of the 1.76 million children we currently reach through our mid-day meals. This working session, held in Stockholm during the EAT Forum, generated 169 ideas and 16 concepts ranging from starting a test kitchen, a community garden to a mentorship programs for our children.
This was the first of a series of working sessions we will organize as part of our TAP Forums to raise awareness and cultivate thought-partnerships.
During the EAT Forum, we also participated in a high-level consultation organized by EAT and UNICEF focusing on the linkages between food systems and child health and nutrition.
