Edible City Solutions for a better world!

On August 17th, the EdiCitNet team took part in the Open Humboldt Festival, a series of public events held throughout August that celebrating and uniting science and art. Located at the university’s North Campus in Berlin Mitte, the team had the opportunity to present the project to members of different university departments and members of the general public.

For this afterwork event revolving around food and health they were joined by EdiCitNet Marketplace member Insec2Eat, a startup which offers insect snacks and flours as an alternative protein source. Despite the bleak weather, visitors were able to enjoy not only this whole range of exotic treats, but also learn about other ways that the EdiCitNet project is making cities greener, more sustainable and more inclusive – and what they can do to get involved.
