SKIN Regional Nodes

One of the key aspects of SKIN engagement strategy aimed at stakeholders in a multi-actor approach

Creating Regional Nodes (RN) is a key part of SKIN’s penetration in partner countries and regions through involving a growing number of stakeholders at regional level. In regions where there are established groups and networks already in place, it may be beneficial to build on these, which is likely to lead to “quick wins” by utilising existing contacts and partnerships to disseminate the key messages to target audiences.

The idea is i) to structure local communities around a shared access resource to knowledge on Short Food Supply Chains (SFSC) and ii) encourage/facilitate cooperation at regional level. The aim is to constantly foster the systemic take-up of innovation in SFSCs by a wider community of stakeholders, rather than leave it to the initiative of a few players. 

Regions that may wish to create (or build on existing networks and structures) a RN, should consider including actors involved a) producers, farmers, processors b) in transport, logistics and delivery (of groceries, food, meals, etc.), c) policy design and implementation (for smart cities, urban agriculture, urban planning and urban food systems) and d) policy design and implementation for circular bio economy, sharing economy and collaborative economy.
