The Big Lunch goes to Chile


Early in November 2016 Peter and Lindsey from Eden Project Communities visited Santiago, Chile, at the invitation of Ciudad Emergente, an NGO dedicated to developing ‘Human-Centred Cities.’ In June of that year, several members of their team visited a Big Lunch in the UK. Six months later, Santiago had its very own Big Lunch model, the Malón Urbano, up and running in communities across the capital. This story is a testament to the pervasive power of social eating and value of gently engaging residents in conversation about reshaping their neighbourhood.
