Three-part webinar series
Organized by Dutch Greenhouse Delta, AVAG, GreenTech, Netherlands Enterprise Agency, Top Sector Horticulture & Starting Materials and World Horti Center
The Dutch ecosystem consists of an integrated approach from farm-to-fork to flower and feed the people in the cities. Important parts of the ecosystem are breeding and propagation, growing young plants, growing vegetables and flowers, packaging and logistics, trade, retail and consumer marketing. All parts of the value chain must be represented. Building long-term relationships is essential for all parts of the ecosystem to function optimally.
Through a series of three webinars, we would like to show how cocreation of future-proof production of food and flower systems can be achieved in practice. This webinar series is primarily focused on national and international policymakers, licensing, and subsidy providers who stimulate investments in agri-food and investors in horticulture.
How can we feed 9 billion people by 2050 with safe, healthy and tasty food without further endangering the environment? How can we create livable cities where their inhabitants can live a healthy and happy life? To achieve that, we need to rethink the way we grow and produce our food. We need a sustainable food system that can boost production, the economy, and help us to restore nature and biodiversity. Food security can only be achieved through a strong partnership between governments, businesses, research institutions and citizens.
New sustainable horticultural ecosystems are needed to solve the world food problem and to create livable cities. The growth of mega-cities continues. Fortunately, valuable solutions have already been implemented in the world.
During this second webinar on June 15 2021, we will take you through the relevant developments in the global food and flower market and zoom in on the specific challenges in the North American market. Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN with the help of the horticultural ecosystem is not left unaddressed. Various cooperation models and business models for setting up food and flower clusters will be discussed. As icing on the cake, we hope to inspire you with a showcase project from North America AppHarvest and with Ceickor, an organisation in Mexico with a proven track record
