PRESENTATION Floating Farms and the Future of Farming
Peter van Wingerden is CEO and founder of Floating Farm, a disruptive way of agriculture on the water, food production close to consumers in a totally new approach (climate adaptive). Floating Farm designs and develop sustainable farms on rivers, ports, lakes, water reservoirs and sea. The first Floating Farm is operational since 2019 and based in The Netherlands (www.floatingfarm.nl) Producing healthy food inside and close to cities is reducing the footprint of food production dramatically in a positive way. It brings back social awareness and connection of citizens to healthy and liveable cities. We call this TRANSFARMATION: The design of cities around healthy foodproduction and farming.
