24. MärzAbout the Global Food Summit 2020

Digitisation will change cities. For the first time in history, there is a possibility that the city will become an ecosystem - through closed production and waste cycles, through an Urban Circular Food Economy. This ecosystem should be as independent and self-sufficient as possible. Innovations and Artificial Intelligence enable a circular thinking in food production, manufacturing and resource processing that was previously unthinkable.
