Together with the Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, we aimed at enhancing the circularity of the Finnish food system. We focused on the continuity of farms since farming isn’t often seen attractive and farmers struggle with finding someone to continue the business. Our proposals were grounded on systemantics (= system semantics). If we wish to enhance the circularity, we need to consider messages we send through the food system (pic 2).
