The Sustainable Urban Delta
To inspire city governments, mayors, architects, city planners, entrepreneurs and individuals for re-thinking the development of cities by creating space for food production for the people of the city, Meiny Prins started the ‘Sustainable Urban Delta’ initiative. The Sustainable Urban Delta is all about the intrinsic quality of people knowing how to deal with problems in an integral way. The opportunities for developing Sustainable Urban Deltas start when rapidly growing metropolises realize that it is necessary to integrate their green belts - where food for the city is produced - in urbanized areas instead of pushing them away. The integration of green belts would create new opportunities on a social, ecological and economic level. It could even be the most tangible way to make the first steps towards a circular economy.
