Joost Bakker Keynote: Design the World You Want Past Event
Fed Square in partnership with Melbourne Design Week, are delighted to invite you to a unique In Conversation event with Joost Bakker and Jo Barrett.
The in-conversation (moderated by Ewan McEoin) will cover topics that will help you to “Design the world you want”.
Imagine a building that grows food. Now imagine millions of buildings that grow food. futurefoodsystem – Joost Bakker’s living eco-experiment currently at Fed Square – shows that our urban environment can be fertile ground. Technology can be adopted that allows for closed loop systems to exist: what society today calls ‘waste’ becomes a valuable resource, like energy and nutrients, that nourishes urban crops, insects, diverse aquaponics systems – then ultimately us.
By celebrating foods that can be grown in this system and adopting this idea on a large scale we can radically change our destructive food systems – encouraging and supporting regenerative agriculture, agro-forestry, rewilding and protecting our remaining wilderness.
