Skip to 0 minutes and 1 second It’s estimated that by 2050, there will be approximately 9 billion people living on Earth, with almost 70% of them projected to live in urban areas. As this population increases, we will need three times more resources to feed them and this is a problem because a third of food produced globally for human consumption is lost or wasted along the value chain. All of this highlights the need for a circular alternative to the linear take, make, and dispose model of production. However, only 8.6% of the world can currently be defined as circular. This online course investigates how we can design and build circular food systems that foster the transition towards sustainable cities.

We will investigate the catalytic role of cities and communities and how they can seize new opportunities to drive the sustainability of urban food systems. Join us on circular business models for sustainable urban food systems.
