Our City of Tomorrow menu this week consisted of products produced entirely in the city of Eindhoven as part of the sustainocratic cocreation program referred to as FRE2SH (Food, Recreation, Education, Energy, Security and Health). We ate eatable flowers, trout, parsley, lettuce, mushroom, honey, etc. A much larger variety is being developed over time by using the available indoor and outdoor city space effectively everywhere in a sustainocratic cooperative for sustainable human progress and city resilience.
The Eindhoven city trout was delicious

Food resilience is key in modern smart city development. Current food supplies may seem to provide abundance but the production and distribution worldwide is destroying our landscapes and climate. FRE2SH uses the 4 x Value ideology with Sustainocratic cooperation between citizens, local government, innovative entrepreneurship and applied science to produce high impact local sustainable progress:
- Value for the human being (healthy food, engagement, awareness, security, less financial dependence, better nutrician)
- Value for society (job development, resilience, effective usage of space, reduced mobility, less bureaucracy, quality food supplies, circular economies)
- Value for the environment (less air pollution, less destruction of landscape, reduce ecological footprint, cyclic reuse of waste)
- Integral economic value (reduces societal costs, profitability by connection consumption directly with production, integrated process, holistic city eco system, circular economy, new local value sharing systems)
This way of working in a city is referred to as peer 4 regional development or the participatory society. It combines awareness, education, growth and sustainable human progress in a powerfull multidisciplinary interaction.
