A participative initiative that will take place in three neighbourhoods of the metropolitan area: Fondo (Santa Coloma de Gramenet), Sant Ildefons Cerdà (Cornellá del Llobregat) and Gràcia (Barcelona).
#FoodMapping is a city science pilot project to jointly map the environment and its nutritional habits. The goal of this initiative is to relate the nutritional offer available in different neighbourhoods with nutritional habits and the decisions neighbours take when they buy food.
In the three neighbourhoods, people participating in the initiative will go to local stores to buy the ingredients to cook lentils. The data about the routes that they take, the stores where they buy and the quality of the products they purchase will be collected through a mobile application. Once the buying process is finished, they will cook the lentils. Then, they will gather to eat them with the community. After the meal, participants will share their experiences on nutritional matters. They will talk about things that worry them the most, their environment perceptions and their nutritional habits.
The FoodMapping Project, part of Plan C of Mobile World Capital, is the first phase of an ambitious initiative called BIG D(IE)TA, which goal is the participative design of nutritional markers that can be incorporated to the life-quality marker system of Barcelona’s Metropolitan Area.
Days of the initiative — February 14th, 15th and 17th of 2019 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Mobile Week Barcelona. The initiative will be developed in three days, one per neighbourhood (the 14th in Sant Ildefons, the 15th in Fondo and the 17th in Gràcia). Joint initiatives will be developed each time with the goal of collecting quality data.
Results will be published on February 21st of 2019 from 4 to 5 p.m. at Elisava (Sala Aleix Carrió), in Mobile Week Barcelona. This event has been cancelled due to the general strike. New date: March 4th from 10.30 a.m to 11.30 a.m at Sede de la Creu Roja C. Joan d’Àustria, 120-124 (Metro Marina)
