This report describes an event held in The Lighthouse on Thursday 3rd October, 2013 involving pupils and teachers from five secondary schools in Glasgow at which the “Glasgow Game” was used to explore how the food environment in Glasgow can be changed for the better.

The “Glasgow Game” is based on the World Game, developed by the International Futures Forum, and is an interactive way for a group to engage in a conversation about the important issues facing Glasgow and to create recommendations regarding future actions to address challenges. 

Using data describing the city and its people from the Understanding Glasgow website, pupils explored current trends in the city, identified possible shocks to the system (e.g. a recession, welfare reform, a fuel crisis) and what the key concerns arising from these shocks would be. At the end of the event, pupils presented 12 declarations setting out actions they considered essential to improve the food environment in Glasgow.

A short film of the event was also produced - watch the film.
