Project: Globally and LOCally-sustainable food-water-energy innovation in Urban Living Labs

Acronym GLOCULL (Reference Number: 11127096)
Duration 01/03/2018 - 28/02/2021
Project Topic 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 seven Urban Living Labs based on an integrated assessment of local-global interactions in the FWE nexus and transdisciplinary action-research.
