Green Belts

A challenge to change!

Over the next 30 years, a city with more than 9 million inhabitants will arise in a lower delta, every 3 months. Inhabitants of these cities will often live in poor circumstances, facing problems related to living, mobility, energy, water and food. On a global level, we see malnutrition, obesity, nitrogen emission, climate change, suffocating concrete jungles… How to make sure these challenges won’t fundamentally deteriorate our quality of life?

If we want to counter the great issues of our time and make mega cities livable, we need to fundamentally change our food and land use system. The good news is, we can. How? By creating Sustainable Urban Deltas; mega cities that embrace food production in metropolitan areas to create new connections on a social, ecological, and economic level, providing space for energy, social cohesion, property development and climate.

Green Belts for Available Fresh Food

Food production in urban areas ensures local production of sufficient, fresh and healthy food where it is needed: close to the people. Great examples exist all over the world and they prove that it’s possible!

Green Belts for Sustainable change

Embracing Green Belts instead of pushing them out is an opportunity to stop with old behavior that destroys or ruins our planet, to start making smart use of scarce resources and stimulate sustainability and circularity.

Green Belts for Livable cities

There’s more! Food production can be a starting point for tackling problems related to living, energy, water and waste. It enables new connections on a social, ecological and economic level, solving many environmental problems.
