Could the future city self-sustain its food production?

On Wednesday, May 31st 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝟰.𝟯𝟬 𝗽𝗺 – 𝟱.𝟯𝟬 𝗽𝗺, we continue with Stephan Becker-Sonnenschein, Founder of the Global Food Summit with focus on disruptive technologies which could secure our nutrition, minimizing the land use and shifting food production into our neighborhoods. These are methods of producing alternative proteins, precision agriculture, vertical farming, fermentation, genome editing or digitization that minimize land use and bring parts of food production to where the consumer is - in cities. Scaling these disruptive models will contribute to SDG 2030 and climate goals.
