Cargo-bikes, Conviviality and Conscious Food: Creative Partnerships and the Circular Economy
Conscious food networks are examples of circular economy systems and represent an opportunity to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with food production.
Innovative partnerships between urban social entrepreneurs and rural producers are essential to provide stability to conscious food networks.
This Insight presents a case study on Cargonomia, an example of a sustainable food production and distribution system located in Budapest, Hungary. It is our view that using cargo-bikes to deliver goods (including local food) within cities can significantly reduce emissions and pollution while contributing to building strong, integrated communities.
