IKEA’s future living lab SPACE10 has made their first ever cookbook with a collection of recipes based on future food trends. What we eat today shapes tomorrow. Considering the world’s food production is challenging the planet, we need to eat in alternative ways – now and in the future. Future Food Today is a collection of recipes based on future food trends, straight from the SPACE10 food lab and test kitchen. The book expresses SPACE10’s beliefs around food and food production. From “dogless hotdogs” and “algae chips”, to “bug burgers” and “microgreen popsicles”, it’s packed with dishes we could one day be eating on a regular basis. It also includes simple guides to producing food locally and sustainably, and explains how to use alternative ingredients, gastronomic innovation and technology—such as hydroponic farming—to offer an alternative to the planet’s growing demand for food and excessive consumption of meat. Features • Future Food Today is both a coffee table book and a kitchen tool, challenging the category of cookbooks both visually and conceptually. • It frames the zeitgeist around food and future food in a visually appealing and easily understandable way. • Futuristic and aspirational, this cookbook with a lab mindset offers a down-to-earth and hands-on approach to food.
Interconnecting the concepts of sustainability, innovation and transformation, this book explains how organizations have successfully transformed themselves and wider society to foster a more sustainable future, and identifies the difficulties and challenges along the way. Part of the Principle of Responsible Management Education (PRME) series, the book promotes a strong voice for meeting sustainability challenges for transformative change in a globalized world through business education and practice. A transition to a more sustainable way of doing business can only be attained by combining technology with profound system innovations and lifestyle changes. The chapters in the book, each written by a strong and well-recognized team of researchers in the field, open up the discussion about a new partnership between sustainability, innovation, and transformation that includes the global society (big world), the biosphere (small planet), and also requires a deep mind shift. The book presents cases from business (including Ikea and Eataly) and other service networks including the Base of the Pyramid (BoP), and illustrates how these organizations have transformed themselves for a sustainable future. The research perspectives are macro (policies and legislation), meso (institutional practices) and micro (business practices and individual behavior). This book is where research meets real-world business and societal practice. The chapters are grounded in business research, specifically the interdependencies between sustainability, innovation, and transformation, which makes for a robust basis for describing, explaining, and understanding the complex challenges faced by business and society in the 21st century. The book is intended for graduate- and postgraduate-level students and executive education with implications for practitioners. Furthermore, it contributes to multidisciplinary research in the field of interaction between business and society with a view to extending the firm-centric view to encompass a broader, systemic, and dynamic understanding of business and societal transformation.
