What does the greenhouse of the future look like? During the first Wageningen Student Challenge, 23 (international) Student teams with students from over 30 universities will each work on a ground-breaking design for sustainable food production in an urban setting (urban greenhouse). The role of local food production continues to grow within cities. The sector is open to new developments. In the Netherlands, more and more initiatives are appearing in this sphere.
During the Student Challenge, students from over 30 universities will take on the challenge of developing a sustainable greenhouse. At the presentation, an example of it will be displayed using a scale model, virtual tour and/or app with which residents can monitor local food production. The involvement of local residents is particularly important.
