THE FEED COLLABORATIVE
The FEED Collaborative is a program in design thinking and food system innovation and impact. Sponsored jointly by the d.school and the School of Earth Sciences, the FEED Collaborative at Stanford creates opportunities for external partners and thought-leaders, students, and faculty to collaborate in designing a more sustainable local food system. The academic objective of the FEED Collaborative is to develop the creative capacity and confidence of students and to integrate this development with their acquisition of knowledge, subject matter expertise, and learning experiences outside the classroom.
Our Winter 2015 class, FEED Lab: Innovating in the Local Food System, is about to get started! Check-in soon for updates!
Check out the fall class, FEED the Change, in the Course Chronicle. You can see what we're up to, who we're talking to (and who is talking to us!), and examples of student work so far. Also - follow us on Twitter for regular awesome updates and food systems juicies - @feedcollab!

OUR POINT OF VIEW
"Human centered design is a powerful process for uncovering the unmet needs of people and for unlocking the creative problem solving potential of its practitioners. Coupled with the domain knowledge of our collaborators and opportunities for social entrepreneurship, we believe human centered design is the most compelling opportunity we have for driving the level of innovation needed to transform our food system."

“Social entrepreneurs focusing on the underserved can move quickly to create the future of education. Those around the globe with the least access to education today may be the first to fully benefit from the breakthroughs enabled by the innovation that is afoot.”
