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.

Teresa holds a Masters in Science in Technology Commercialisation from the Advanced Materials Research Center in Mexico and the University of Texas in Austin as well as a Masters in Habitat from the Universidad Iberoamericana Puebla. Her professional experience has been in the Science and Technology Sector, first as technology transfer professional at a public research center dedicated to physics (2000-2013) and at the National Science and Technology Council (CONACYT) designing public policy in innovation (2014-2018). During her eighteen years in the technology transfer and innovation field, MSc de León developed and taught in at least ten different educational programs and designed and operated at least fifteen public funding competitions in CONACYT. Her trajectory in innovation policy took her to lead Mexico´s participation in the Transformative Innovation Policy Consortium in SPRU (2016 - 2018) which unfortunately got cancelled with the change of government. Her interest in the field of transformative innovation took her to dedicate her recent Masters in Habitat to study the agroecological niche in a peri urban area in the state of Puebla, Mexico and to start collaborating with the actors in the niche to promote a public agenda for better understanding and transforming the local food system.
