Food for thought! The future of food in the city
In 2050 nine billion people will be living on Earth, 75 per cent of them in cities. If we go on at this rate, we will need several extra planets for the production of our food. Food for the City examines how we can keep feeding our cities.
Ever since Carolyn Steel’s international bestseller The Hungry City also conquered the Netherlands, food is no longer a subject reserved for experts. Food for the City goes a step further and presents 12 visions from experts from across the world on the future of food in the city in the year 2050. In addition, a timeline from 2050 BCE to 2050 CE and a richly varied pictorial essay offer the reader an intriguing look at a subject that may be hip and hot now, but has in fact occupied people for millennia.
The politician, the activist, the economist, the philosopher, the chef, the architect and the farmer, among others, offer their view of the future of food for the city.
