THINK EAT : Urban Alternatives
THINK EAT: Urban Alternatives is an artistic-scientific exhibition on the future of food in the city, presented at the BIGH, Europe’s largest suspended farm.
Through this exhibition, artists, researchers, entrepreneurs and citizens are invited to reflect on sustainable ways of urban production and consumption. Today, almost half of humanity, or 3.5 billion people, live in cities, putting food systems under pressure.
However, scenarios to compensate for urban demographic pressure do exist and cities therefore appear to be a space of transition. Faced with the climate emergency and the impact generated by the agri-food system, many sustainable models are possible.
But how does the urban transition take place? Can we get out of our food conditioning, reshape the way we produce and consume? In other words, how will we eat in the city tomorrow?
