Toelichting (Engels) The invention of agriculture and the constant increase in population, since the dawn of civilization, has put us in a situation where the need to produce food for human consumption has become a threat to the planet’s survival. An idea for urban farming on a large scale is Dickson Despommier’s vision of vertical farming, a concept in which almost utopian visionaries see all cultivation move into huge greenhouse complexes in cities. What implications would a shift from traditional farming methods have in an ecological sustainability perspective and what would it require of us, economically and socially? This article discusses whether vertical farming has a place in the sustainable city of the future.
