Peter Madden, Forum for the Future: Feeding future cities

Themes: Globalisation and international business, Guest speakers

Cambridge Judge Business School’s Centre for International Business and Management (CIBAM) symposium on ‘Securing Food and Water’ attracted views from business leaders, academics, politicians, civil servants, diplomats and NGOs who shared their ideas on how to ensure that future generations have sustainable and resilient access to food and water.

What will future urban food systems look like? Will food be locally or globally sourced? Will it be intensively or extensively produced? Will it be natural or engineered? Peter Madden, Chief Executive of Forum for the Future, explores the trade-offs between efficiency, equity sustainability and resilience.
