The Food System is a socio-technical system with very well known negative externalities for the environment, for social equity and for health, to mention the most important ones (FAO, 2019; IAAST, 2021). It is extremely difficult to find sustainable ways to promote local agroecological farming and more sustainable eating habits. Nevertheless, there are incredible niches that are making a difference worldwide, many of them in the Global North (GN) and urban contexts, which have proven to be able to reconstruct community dynamics, build local economies, create greener and more sustainable economies and healthier communities.
Global South (GS) urban and peri urban agro ecological initiatives exist, facing socio-technical regimes with weak institutions, lack of policies, very weak civil society and very high levels of corruption (Ramos-Mejía, et.al. 2018; AS/COA, et.al,.2021). An open conversation with transformative innovation practitioners can be of great value to identify networking engagement in joint experiments that can contribute to local GS niches to get to mainstream processes that will help them nurture, grow and scale to different territories and social groups.
