FOOD SYSTEMS AND THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

This event, co-hosted and presented by Chris Jones on June 17th 2019, with Impact Hub Lausanne and Circular Economy Transition Switzerland, built upon the event held in Geneva in April. 

The evening focused on how developed cities can embrace the food system as a catalyst for achieving economic, social and environmental benefits. There were references to success stories, policies and strategies from cities including Paris, Brussels, Madrid, New York and Sao Paolo plus examples of real, working urban food projects and businesses as diverse as hi-tech hydro- and aquaponic indoor systems, to rooftop green houses, vertical façade farms and community based education and nutrition initiatives.
