CLICK TO READ SPEAKER’S BIOGRAPHY:
Without photosynthesis there is no life.The cyclic processes behind photosynthesis are an important link between humans and technical systems that deliver services in cities (waste water treatment, heating, waste handling, energy production, etc.). Therefore urban agriculture (UA) is a solution as long as people are urban. Some time around 2045, 80% of the 9 billion world population will live in cities. Feeding the city will be one of the main challenges of our future, using as little water and energy as possible and move crops closer to the consumer. The vertical greenhouse is an elementary concept for sustainable and resilient urban agriculture solutions. It can be operated as a profitable business venture.
Mr. Hassle also emphasizes the need for Third Generation CSR – corporate social responsibility which focuses on solving societal problems and achieving a balance between commercial thinking and more idealistic principles.
The powerpoint presentation will be uploaded here shortly.
