By 2050, almost 70% of the world population will live in urban areas.
90% of this increase will predictably take place in Asia and Africa. A population that by 2050 will eat, drink, and consume more natural resources, while we are already struggling today to satisfy basic needs. A growing global population with deteriorating natural resources and increased urbanization means more people to feed with less water, farmland, and rural labor.
Regenerative Cities Learning Objectives
- Increase water-use efficiency
- Responsible use and production
- Reduce food waste

The course modules in the Regenerative Cities track are addressed through masterclasses and live conversations with experts in the field. The masterclasses are live sessions or thematic videos recorded by experts and provide a general overview of the topics. The current situation and future challenges are further explored and identified.
Cities are already today, the principal center for the production and consumption of our society. This role will be further strengthened in the near future, when almost 70% of the global population (nearly 7 billion people) is predicted to live in urban areas by 2050.
Our open conversations between Future Food and experts dig deeper into thematic topics. Content focuses on sharing insights from daily practice, discoveries, and future solutions. These live sessions are interactive with the possibility to ask questions.
