Indoor farming meets the requirements for all seventeen of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Accordingly, it also touches on all of the Urban Future programme's 10 tracks. Why then, do so many smart-city strategies leave out food completely? It is our belief that food production is among the most relevant topics for the future of cities. The right to food is a basic human right, and cities can either ease or disrupt access to healthy food.
Our role at Urban Future is to facilitate an honest conversation on best practices in urban food production.

In the context of increasing urbanization, indoor farming represents an immense opportunity for smart cities. In coming to Urban Future, we will help more cities move toward realising their food production potential. We encourage you to bring all your passion to the table; we will bring the expertise necessary to translate that passion into action!
