PhD funding available at Essex:
Topic: The impact of relocalised food systems on wellbeing
Food produced with a light ecological footprint, as a collective community effort, and distributed through short food chains could contribute to achieving sustainability, resilience and improved wellbeing. This research will further our understanding of the outcomes of such relocalisation initiatives in the East of England on the wellbeing of individuals, households and communities. It will also contribute to an understanding of the wider implications of relocalisation – i.e. its implications for regional and national policy and economy. The research will be part of a wider initiative to actively work together with members of local groups in the East of England to achieve positive and measurable outcomes in terms of betterment of local food production and consumption.
