∑-Grow Inside webinar: Integration of food production in circular cities

June 27 live from World Horti Center.

On Tuesday June 27 World Horti Center is organizing the fifth ∑-Grow Inside webinar. This edition’s topic: ‘integration of food production in circular cities’. With cities growing fast, food production becomes a serious challenge. What role will the horticultural industry play in this? The expert panel talks about operational projects in diverse locations in the world where food production is integrated in existing buildings or living environments. ∑-Grow Inside can be watched online or live in the audience at World Horti Center.

Integration of food production in circular cities
The world population keeps growing, especially urban areas are facing serious challenges with rapid growth. The UN predicts that by 2050 two-thirds of the world’s population will live in cities. How will these cities provide sufficient and safe food to their people? And what will food production look like by then? Will we integrate living, working and food production into the same buildings? The high-tech horticultural industry can play an important role in these challenges, but what knowledge is needed and how can the industry help exactly? On June 27 the expert panel goes into discussion on these challenges and more.
