Robotlove opens today as a 10 week event that questions our relationship with robots in general and opens up the dialogue on our dependence on technology. Are we being run by robots or are they there to helps us live a better life?
This is a fundamental discussion that also concerns us at City of Tomorrow while we consider our integral human resilience or lack thereof as we use systems to serve and destroy us. In essence our transformative initiatives hook on well with this. For instance the issue of food and our dependence of the economic system to access our primary needs. FRE2SH is our city farm initiative that unites about 30 different companies, production, food innovation, research, food processing, restaurants, etc into one food resilience circular eco-system. It is not a surprise that RobotLove decided to work with us for the catering of 400 volunteers as crew and 90.000 expected visitors.
We prepared salades, wraps, mexican tortillas, sweets and even city brewed special beers for the event. We also registered volunteers through our COS3I social inclusion activities. Sustainocracy is not just a theory, it is put into practice as well. We are one big new world family!
During DDW2017 (Dutch Design Week 2017) in Eindhoven we had the opportunity to open the doors of our food resilience initiative, referred to as the FRE2SH cooperative (Food, Recreation, Energy, Education, Sustainocracy, Health).Over 4500 visitors came to see the FRE2SH ecosystem in which various businesses connect to share food responsibilities in town. Such partners are forming a community relationship between city food production, consumption and food processing activities.Currently FRE2SH provides different types of herbs, lettuce, flowers, mealworms, oyster mushrooms, water Kefir, trout…Some of these products are processed into salades, soups, brownies, hamburgers, etc.There is a zero waste policy in which solutions are designed to reuse all nutrients in the chain. Also residues like plastic, coffee, etc are reused. Transportation is done on foot or by bicycle to avoid air pollution.
The STIR sustainocratic cooperative in Eindhoven for Food Securities in city populations, FRE2SH, is uniquely exposing itself through presentations, workshops and food trials during the entire Dutch Design Week 2017 (October 21st till 29th). We show our wurm and mushroom productions, aquaponics, the FRE2SH phylosophy and partnerships with permaculture in and around town. Also our restaurant and neighboorhood food engagement programs are being presented as well as food innovations and our intentions for the future.
