Share Your Vision of Vertical Farming
26 September 2018
As part of the EU project, “Cultivating Engagement”, we would like to partner together with you to revision the concept of vertical farming! We would love to see and hear what you personally think of as vertical farming, and what images you associate with it. If you haven’t heard of vertical farming, that’s completely fine! We still value your opinion.
As part of the European Green Deal, the Farm to Fork Strategy sets out a vision to change the way Europeans value food sustainability and to position Europe as the first climate neutral continent by 2050.
More than ever, there is a growing awareness of the impact of food poverty, unequal access to nutritious food, and the vital role that delivery, factory and retail workers play in keeping people fed, healthy and safe. It is clear that our food system, currently designed to maximise output and profits, is not fit for purpose within a landscape of increasing shocks, disruption and challenges.
