Fresh fruit and vegetable supply serious game

January 2018 – present

In the UK, we enjoy a year-round supply of fresh fruit and vegetables from here and abroad. However, much of it comes from water-stressed regions, including East Anglia and South Africa. Therefore, the fresh fruit and vegetable system, from farm to fork, is exposed to water-related and other risks. For example, what would happen to water resources if we all started hitting our 5-a-day targets? What about climate change? Or Brexit?

The Global Food Security project “Increasing resilience to water-related risks in the UK fresh fruit and vegetable system” aims to answer some of these questions. As part of this project, I’ll be designing a board game which simulates the UK and international fresh fruit and vegetable systems, which will be played by stakeholders to help us understand risk and resilience throughout the whole system.
