Green Growth Dialogue 2017

This years Green Growth Dialogue will literally focus on green growth – or rather growing greens!

We have decided to begin preparations on a conference that will focus on Sustainable Food Production in the Arctic. More precisely we will focus on local commercial production of greens and vegetables that are not commonly produced in the Arctic.

Due to weather and soil conditions in the Arctic, the vast majority of commercial produce is currently imported; adding to transport emissions, imports of plastics and related packaging materials and is subject to spoilage and wasted resources.

To combat this, the Green Growth Dialogue of 2017 will consider hydroponics, aquaponics and other related in-door and year-round methods of production.

The conference is slated to take place in the Faroe Islands in June of 2017. Please stay tuned for further information shortly.
