In this course, we will explore the fascinating intersection of urban development and food production, unraveling the full potential of Edible City Solutions.

Edible City Solutions go beyond vertical gardens, rooftop farms, community gardens and urban aquaponics. They embody a holistic approach to urban development, incorporating elements such as biodiversity conservation, waste reduction, water recycling, social engagement and co-creation.

Are you planning to start your edible city initiative, start-up or (social) business and you need some guidance on how to do that? Are you considering adding a social component to your business and looking for best practices on doing that? Are you working for the local municipality and would like to learn more about incorporating Edible City Solutions into urban planning? Are you simply curious about the future of cities? Throughout the course, we will delve into the many benefits of Edible City Solutions, including improved food access, enhanced urban resilience, reduced ecological footprints, innovative techniques and strengthened community bonds.
