COMPOST MAKERS FOR CITIES, HYDROPONICS AND DISRUPTIVE SOLUTIONS AGAINST MOLD AND WASTE! CHECK OUT THE STUDENTS’ BEST IDEAS TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE AT MAKER FAIRE ROME 2018!

The Future Food Zone, the area dedicated to food-tech and sustainability has been the Show and Tell of the latest innovations in food and agriculture for the third year in a row, thanks to the partnership between Future Food Institute and Maker Faire Rome. Food innovation has been tasted, discussed, represented in its best practices and… experimented! A section of the Future Food Zone this year has been dedicated to a very special hackathon, a think-tank animated by the participation of high school talents, mentors from the world of research and communication and organized with the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research. The focus? Rethinking food production and consumption to prevent risks and problems of climate change. In three days #MFR18 has become the incubator of innovative ideas and the testing ground for new projects! Plastic, tech solutions, circular economy and much more… Two have been the winning ideas of the first HackFood4ClimateChange.

  • I think it”s amazing how many resources actually exist for New Yorkers to reduce waste, compost and donate clothes. It”s easy for New York residents to forget these services amidst their busy schedules and turbulent lifestyles. Engaging the public through Ad campaigns, street signage and online resources would do a better job at educating New Yorkers on the many services they have it their backyard to begin rethinking, and breaking, old habits. Maybe it”s just the millennial in me talking but I think an app would be great. Breaking waste down by type and spatially organizing the services available across New York City through maps would allow New Yorkers to conserve in an efficient and user-friendly way. New York has a large population of people who are concerned about environmental problems but are unaware as to what they can do. Targeting this group would go a long way to foster individual action on a large scale. andy kaufman character tony
