The Victorian Eco-Innovation Lab (VEIL) was a research-design-action group focused on innovation for more sustainable and resilient future cities. It was an interdisciplinary group whose work engaged with and embedded in industry, government and communities.
VEIL’s work aimed to shift thinking about both what is possible and what is needed imminently to create a more sustainable future. The group’s projects used scenarios, modelling, and visualisations of alternative futures to help communicate these ideas.
What might a sustainable and resilient neighbourhood look like? How can we transform existing urban communities through design interventions?
Urban agriculture’s role in resilient city food systems
With the help of citizen scientists and gardeners, this project is creating a new urban agriculture dataset. This dataset will allow urban agriculture to be looked at in the context of its role in cities and in food supply resilience, both now and into a climate change affected future.
