Nº.2: Food in the Circular Economy
Imagine a journey into the future in a timeline in which the Circular Economy has been successfully implemented by all societies.
As your destination, you choose an urban area of the city where you live, a landscape that you were used to seeing gray, lifeless. However, this is in the future… “wow!”. You look around and green has taken over the streets, squares, backyards, balconies, and roofs.
Imagine a world where fruit trees flourish, healthy food is abundant, and pedestrians can pluck fresh fruit right from the sidewalk. All this thanks to organic waste that is no longer destined for the trash, but instead nourishes the land and preserves soil quality.
This is just one of the scenarios of how our relationship with foods can change through the Circular Economy, bringing benefits to health, nourishing the soil, providing more happiness and, above all, reducing inequality of access to food and food insecurity.
