November Learning Journey 4-11 November 2018


The November meeting aims to gather the core team, the thinking partners and sponsors. The
agenda includes a learning journey, development sessions on the strategy of the Social
Gastronomy Movement (SGM) and various local events around innovation and gastronomy.


The journey will consist of three events.

Refettorio Gastromotiva    4th-7th of November

The meetings at the Refettorio Gastromotiva (RGM) aim to set the base for the SGM and to plan the year ahead together with the core team and thinking partners. During the meetings at the RGM we will bring to the same table the core team (doers) and thinking partners (thinkers). The aim of the working sessions is to structure what hasn't been structured yet with the main objective to make the SGM sustainable. Being a Movement, the SGM needs to keep a certain flexibility and co-leadership, however, its drivers and leaders need to bring direction and set basic rules. A local facilitator helps us to build the flow of those meetings.

Activities will include:

• Learning journey including visits of favelas and social projects etc.

• RGM experience, serving the beneficiary dinner, learning about Gastromo\va
