RUNNING YOUR OWN LOCAL DIALOGUE

The Fork to Farm Local Dialogues are about farmers and cities being the drivers, rather than the objects, of transformation. These dialogues are local-led relationship-building meetings. The first set of Fork to Farm Local Dialogues were held in the run up to COP26 in 2021, when we held the Fork to Farm Global Dialogue. Lessons from these Local Dialogues have been used to write this Resource Pack. 

RESOURCE PACK

Our Resource Pack offers guidance, grounded in local contexts. Information that you can sift through, take what is useful and ignore what is not to help you design your own dialogue Process.

A collection of:

  • Dialogue stories: written through interviews with, and edited by, the Local Dialogue Facilitators. These case studies contain information on how the facilitators started the process, how they invited participants, who they invited and why, challenges they faced, methods they used and process outcomes.

  • Tools and activities which were co-designed by Pat Black from Go Deep Scotland and Diana Garduño Jimenez from Nourish Scotland. These were used with the Local Dialogue facilitators in fortnightly meetings, some of which were then used by facilitators in their own dialogue. When necessary, these tools and activities have both online and in-person versions.
