The ME=WE Pathway Giga Map presents action research titled Co-Designing Food Revolution for Social Change at Zayed University, UAE. It attempted to capture a visual narrative of the research process which was facilitated by ME=WE framework development. It aims to strengthen the process of ‘individual capacity building’ leading to ‘collective capacities’ in order to contribute to positive social change in a path of service. The concept creation and development of ME=WE framework (integrating Mobius Strip, Panarchy, Two Moral Purpose, Permaculture Principles, and Theory U), and the application (how it was applied to the action research) are the two main areas. The map structured in 6 columns; 1) A proposed model 2) Supporting theories and practices, 3) ME=WE pathway in a single at the top and multiple expansion process at the bottom, 4) Individual Capacity Building in ME (EGO) Integration Process to WE (ECO), 5) Action Research Timeline visualizing unfolding activities and impact in three pillars of the project: Inclusivity, Zero-Waste, and Well-Being from Action-Reflection perspectives, and 6) Top – Prototyping Future with envisioning a social enterprise biz model, Middle – ME (EGO) Integration Process to WE (ECO), and Bottom – Groundwork to validate assumptions and further understanding of systems and stakeholders using Systemic Design Toolkit.
