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.

Integration of food production in circular cities
The world population keeps growing, especially in 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?
