New survey appears to search out impacts of local weather change on Guelph’s meals, procuring decisions
Looking to be more green, be it through the food you eat or the products you buy? The city and county want to hear from you.
Until June 26, the Guelph-Wellington Smart Cities Office is conducting a survey to gauge the influence climate change has on residents’ day-to-day lives and buying choices, “especially when it comes to food,” according to a post on the City of Guelph’s website.
The post adds that survey input “will help shape future messaging and projects developed through Our Food Future and the Circular Opportunity Innovation Launchpad that support climate change mitigation locally and globally.”
Launched in 2021, the Circular Opportunity Innovation Launchpad is a federally funded test platform and accelerator for circular economy-based businesses.
Our Food Future stems from the city and county’s 2019 Smart Cities Challenge win, giving them $10 million to help create a circular economy, which sees increased access to nutritious food and finding ways to reuse food that is typically thrown away.
