second to pandemics, food may be the biggest risk of the 2020s trilliondollaraudit.com food

what have we parents done to millennials rights? from war to subprime, from climate crisis to pandemic crisis we have failed trilliondollaraudits compound risk of purpose in spite of the great leaps in tech - don't forget food

whenever western leaders spend too much money or time on causing people to be afraid, history shows that hey forget how fragile food supply chain maps can be - hence we suggest parents everywhere should demand all political parties unite around making sure we are not missing out food-tech

Vertical farms have become a growing strategy to ease food insecurity in dense cities, and now an architect wants to take one to new heights. MIT’s Carlo Ratti has proposed a 51-story skyscraper in China’s technology hub of Shenzhen, with greenery encasing its entire shell. The farm would sit between two sets of windows in the building’s “double-skin facade,” allowing sunlight to reach both the plants and the interior. The tower would also house office space, a supermarket and a food court, and could produce enough greens, tomatoes and berries for 40,000 people.

Ratti envisions his “farmscraper” as a self-contained food supply chain, but maintaining the massive structure could become a challenge

regen - to be frank I start with zero knowledge about this - would love to hear independent reports - chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

On November 2 at COP26, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and 12 partners announced Regen10, an ambitious collective action plan to scale regenerative food production systems, worldwide, in a decade.launched at COP26. Regen10 is a broad alliance, including the Sustainable Food Trust, World Farmers Organisation, Eastern Africa Farmers Federation, Food & Land Use Coalition, World Bank Group, World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), SYSTEMIQ, IMAGINE, We Mean Business Coalition, Future Stewards, OP2B and Club of Rome.

The initiative, with farmers at its heart, will work with over 500 million farmers to apply regenerative production methods and transform agricultural systems, as well as ensure roughly USD $60 billion per year is deployed to finance the transition. By 2030, it is hoped that over 50% of the world’s food can be produced in a way that drives positive outcomes for people, for nature and for climate.
