Discussions and Workshops

The agenda for Stream 2016 is in your hands. There are six session times a day, hosted in nine different meeting spaces. Each session runs for 1 hour (give or take) and all sessions are led by you, the Stream participants. Here's how it works:

  1. Before Stream - Share your idea - Create a New Discussion by clicking on the blue ‘add idea’ button on the left of this page
  2. Before Stream - Invite others to join you - you can see the participants list at the Participants page
  3. At Stream - Book a slot - when you arrive on site, write your discussion on the Big Boards

The Stream Team is on hand to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts.

We need to talk about food.

It’s a huge topic, covering climate change, global economics, consumer preferences, the sustainable development goals, you name it. And we need to talk about it because food is, quite literally, vital to us all. But people feel disempowered in the food system. People’s relationship with food is complex, cultural, often emotional and values-based as well as rational. They've told us that they worry about losing connection to family, society and identity in the face of modern, convenience based lifestyles. They worry that access to healthy food will become a luxury. They worry that the food industry holds all the cards. People sometimes ask to be ‘forced’ to listen. So...how can media and technology help ordinary people feed themselves and their families in the way that feels right for them?
