Footpaths aim to create paths to do two things. First, to support a right after our heart’s desire to change current unsustainable food systems especially around the area of King’s Cross. Second, to encourage university and Community to help each other.

We deliberately naming this project the King’s Cross Movement is precisely to politicizes the whole process. The creation of a public sphere of active democratic participation, demands everyone’s contribution. It’s not merely about any individual but about you and me and us. And yet, Footpaths is not a fully signpost journey to a utopia, but paths that we all have to seek and find, like any other adventurous journeys that full of mud and perhaps uncertainties and insecurity, but at the same time excitement and fun.

The good news is that we don’t have to try out everything from the scratch. London as a global city, it has so many talents, knowledge and resources around. It’s like when we travel together and we need to work together to overcome many obstacles and we need to help each other. It is great that we have a community kitchen in a community garden to start with. It is even greater that we can make this place or this project an exemplar to create the many paths towards our desired urban food systems, not to a few, but to everyone in the city.
