About The Event

Join us for an engaging THINK-table session as we delve into the world of indoor agriculture and its pivotal role in shaping future food security amidst the challenges of climate change. Our session will revolve around a thought-provoking discussion starter paper titled “Indoor Agriculture – Can it make significant contributions to food security under climate change?”

Indoor agriculture, comprising greenhouse production, controlled environment agriculture, and vertical farming, has emerged as a beacon of hope in the quest for sustainable food production. However, with its promises come significant hurdles that demand our attention and collaborative solutions.

Our objective is clear: to harness the collective wisdom of select experts and stakeholders to explore the untapped potential of indoor agriculture. We aim to dissect its capacity to mitigate climate change impacts, minimize land and resource requirements, and ultimately bolster food security on a global scale.

But our discourse doesn’t stop there. We’ll confront head-on the challenges that loom large over indoor agriculture, from energy consumption to the well-being of agricultural workers and the imperative of crop diversity.

Join us in this vital conversation as we navigate the complexities and opportunities of indoor agriculture. Together, let’s pave the way for a more resilient and sustainable future food system.
