BCFN YES is the perfect opportunity to bring together the skills from our studies and personal interests, applying them to contribute to overall sustainability.

In contemporary society people depend on food from distant sources. Thanks to cheap non-renewable fossil fuels, the food we usually eat is being transported for long distance from producer to consumer with rising demand for processed and out-of-season products. On the other hand, an increasing number of people is concerned about the problem and would like to consume food produced locally. Nevertheless, many obstacles can be in the way: people who have the resources (e.g. garden space) do not have the skills and the time, but people who have the skills and the time do not have the physical resources. Grounding on the potentialities offered by social media the GIMBY application is proposed as a solution. It helps to build and maintain neighbourly relationships and to create a network of people who want to share their skills and resources for a more sustainable, local, and auto production of food based on crowdsourcing.
