Background
For quite some time, CITIES has been tracking, studying, supporting and engaging with a wide variety of creative and social initiatives concerning urban farming. Today in Amsterdam, a growing number of innovative entrepreneurs are interested in the economic perspective of producing food in the city. However, examples of successful ‘green ecopreneurs’ can seem difficult to find.

What is the reason for this? What is holding back entrepreneurs? And are there examples of successful entrepreneurs in Amsterdam? Is there a market for products that are produced in the city? CITIES, in cooperation with Priva and the Amsterdamse Innovatie Motor (AIM), presents a debate during the Food and Architecture Fair. During the debate, thanks to the lovely moderation of Linda Vermaat, we will pose these questions to a crowd of eager professionals. Entrepreneurs, architects, locavores, or anyone else with an open and curious mind are more then welcome to come and join the discussion. After the debate we have a drink together to give entrepreneurs who (want to) focus on urban farming the chance to discuss and make connections.
