    GLOCULL project kick-off meeting in Maastricht

    28-05-2018

    Challenges in food, water and energy systems are locally and globally connected. For local actors, including cities, it is difficult to anticipate whether solutions to one issue in the FWE-nexus are sustainable across food, water and energy systems, both at the local and the global scale. The GLOCULL project therefore aims to develop an Urban Living Lab approach for innovations in the FWE nexus that are locally and globally sustainable. To support future implementation of this approach, guidelines and a participatory assessment tool kit will be developed through co-creation in 7 Urban Living Labs, based on an integrated assessment of local-global interactions in the FWE nexus and transdisciplinary action-research in the local Living Labs. On May 16th ,17th and 18th GLOCULL university partners  came together in Maastricht to discuss the Living Lab experiments and project deliverables and to visit SUPERLOCAL, the Dutch Living Lab under investigation.
