Sustainable Food Planning

Feeding the City/Feeding Cities

Published at: 12 December 2018

The Dutch new town of Almere hosts the 3rd AESOP SFP workshop for PhD students and Young. The conference theme is the role of food in cities. Questions to be asked: Can cities feed themselves? Is it imaginable that cities in the future will
feed their surrounding environment through experimentation and
alternative, sustainable practices? Do we simply have to accept that cities feed
themselves on the global market and on their hinterland, leading to an
unequal division of benefits and costs of environmental problems? In
other words, should we speak of ‘Feeding the City’ or rather of ‘the
Feeding City’?
