Interested in urban farming and the circular economy? Join for the Food and Cities conference – a one-day event which will focus on the sharing of knowledge and experiences relating to establishing and running urban food production initiatives. The programme draws upon real world cases presented by speakers from municipalities, academics, private companies, and entrepreneurs demonstrating fresh approaches to- and challenges facing urban food production. Food supply chains represent a big, problematic and often complicated issue for cities and urban areas as they strive to become more environmentally sustainable.
This event marks the finale of the Urban Food from Residual Heat Open Innovation competition – seeking technical and business model solutions to establishing urban food production centres powered by waste heat sources. EIT Climate-KIC is a sponsor and Martin Berg will explain how the City of Gothenburg work to a better integration of peri-urban areas through food systems development and the new Saturn project. Saturn project designs a way for cities and their surrounding areas to be better connected through natural assets and land use sustainable management.
