International Conference on Urban Agriculture and City Sustainability

  • 09-11 Oct 2018 ( remind me )
  • Balmer Lawn Hotel & Saltus Spa - Brockenhurst, New Forest, New Forest District,  UK

The aim of the Conference is to review and discuss ways in which urban agriculture can contribute to achieve sustainable cities.As urban populations continue to increase it is essential to consider ways of reducing their impact in terms of use of natural resources, waste production and climate change.The increasing number of people in cities requires new strategies to supply the necessary food with limited provision of land and decreasing resources. This will become more challenging unless innovative solutions for growing and distributing food in urban environments are considered.The scale of modern food production has created and exacerbated many vulnerabilities and the feeding of cities is now infinitely more complex. As such the food system cannot be considered secure, ethical or sustainable.The Urban Agriculture conference will address the challenges and search for new solutions.
