Opening Welcome: Farm the City
In the face of rapid urbanisation and the accelerating climate crisis, cities and their residents have to step up from being part of the problem to being part of the solution. Through this session, we challenge the conventional role of urban farming as a simply production asset, and aim to drive a radical rethinking of a holistic eco-system that integrates urban agriculture with urban development to achieve climate resilient and more liveable cities.
- Is urban farming the key driver to help cities to achieve toward a greater end and impact?
- What are the key crisis points within our food system that can be changed to contribute towards climate action, and a more regenerative city?
- How can we encourage partnerships and eco-system thinking across multiple stakeholders to drive greater city resilience?
- Urban agriculture has been heralded as a solution, but can it deliver?
