RETHINKING Urban Agriculture

ETH Zürich | Chris Luebkeman, Marcel Graf, Iris Haberkorn, Anja Steglich

Cultivating sustainable solutions for current and future cities

The rapid pace of urbanization and the growing demands for food security, environmental sustainability, and community resilience have necessitated a critical reassessment of our approach to agriculture. Urban agriculture holds immense potential to transform our cities into vibrant and sustainable ecosystems, hence enhancing biodiversity and ecological resilience within city limits. To explore innovative strategies, challenges, and opportunities for cultivating food within urban environments, we need to think about the integration of urban agriculture into urban planning and design, leveraging technological advancements for efficient and scalable food production, fostering community engagement and empowerment, and enhancing food accessibility and equity. All towards resilient and food-secure cities that nourish both people and the planet.

This event is part of ETH Zurich’s RETHINKING LIVING campaign. We are all feeling massive change across just about every aspect of our lives. Climate change, the destruction of biodiversity and technological disruptions present threats, but more importantly, an opportunity to focus on grand challenges, to embrace deeper meaning, and to rediscover overlooked aspects of our lives. RETHINKING LIVING convenes scientists, industry experts and outstanding global thinkers from ETH Zurich and across the world.
