WEBINAR: A one stop solution to feed the world (part 3)

In een serie van drie webinars willen we laten zien hoe co-creatie kan worden gerealiseerd voor een toekomstbestendige food & flower industrie.

De webinarserie is volledig Engelstalig, net als onderstaande informatie.

How can we feed 9 billion people by 2050 with safe, healthy and tasty food without further endangering the environment? How can we create livable cities where their inhabitants can live a healthy and happy life? To achieve that, we need to rethink the way we grow and produce our food. We need a sustainable food system that can boost production, the economy, and help us to restore nature and biodiversity. Food security can only be achieved through a strong partnership between governments, businesses, research institutions and citizens.

New sustainable horticultural ecosystems are needed to solve the world food problem and to create livable cities. The growth of mega-cities continues. Fortunately, valuable solutions have already been implemented in the world.
