You are invited to Farm the City!
Farm the City is a movement to promote greater city liveability and urban resilience via urban farming.
Following the successful inaugural Farm the City event last November, we will be scaling up this initiative at the ReThink HK Conference taking place on October 5th this year, under the theme of "Rethinking Urban Resilience and Liveability" where we will cover topics ranging from stakeholder collaboration, city and urban design as well as ESG impact through talks, panels and interactive discussions.
Date: Wednesday, 5th October 2022
Time: 2.30pm - 6.00pm Hong Kong Time
Farm The City: Rethinking Urban Resilience and Liveability
Our cities are facing an unprecedented resilience crisis with our heavy dependency on a global industrialised food system based on an unsustainable linear production to disposal model. 70% of the world’s population (6 billion) will live in cities by 2045, so addressing urban resilience and city liveability challenges becomes a time pressing agenda.
The global pandemic has exposed our vulnerabilities with the breakdown of global and national food supply chains, sending a strong and urgent message that cities need to rethink, re-strategise and redesign the way forward.

This Year's Recap
Farm the City 2022 has successfully concluded!
Thank you for supporting yet another successful Farm the City event which was held on 5-6 October 2022 at ReThink HK.
With the theme "Rethinking Urban Resilience and Liveability," this year's programme was able to include people from all walks of life involved in the discussion, practise, and walking the walk, we know we are on our way to achieving a better and more liveable city environment with urban resilience and sustainability.
Furthermore, the Urban Land Institute's Interactive City Food Lab, which was co-hosted with UrbanPlan HK, was a huge success! We were ecstatic to see such a strong interest in redesigning our future city and developing a model of the future food system as part of the planning process.
