City Changers, are you in? The Urban Future Global Conference in Oslo

For four days, Oslo was the center of the global urbanists, i.e., the experts working on a sustainable future for the growing metropolises of the world. The Urban Future Global Conference is the largest conference for architects, construction companies, mayors, politicians, urban planners, NGOs, innovation officers, communications agencies and energy and water utilities. And of course also urban food producers. Within the framework of the Urban Future Global Conference, the Association for Vertical Farming held various discussion panels that focused on the future of urban indoor farming. The Global Food Summit was a speaker at two of these panels and then discussed with representatives from the FAO, the University of Arizona, Wageningen University and Crop One from the USA.

Around 3000 visitors and 300 speakers, including Foreign Ministers and Lord Mayors of important cities, had traveled from over 400 cities around the world to exchange views at around 85 panels in Oslo. In 2020, the Urban Future Global Conference will take place in Lisbon.
