The Future of Food

The Future is Food is a short film that combines the television cooking show format with an exploration of the food justice efforts of GreenRoots, a community-based organization dedicated to improving and enhancing the urban environment and public health in Chelsea and surrounding communities.

A Look Inside the Co-Creation Process

Social Impact Studios, facilitated by the Engagement Lab, give Emerson students and faculty the opportunity to work directly with local grassroots changemakers to co-create media projects that will make an impact in Boston and beyond.

The Future of Food was just one of many projects generated by Fall 2023’s Social Impact Studio "Future Imaginaries: Unwritten Stories of Climate Change and Sustainability" as part of the Transforming Narratives for Environmental Justice initiative.
