The Global Innoversity is an innovation accelerator through which the world’s metropolitan regions get inspired and supported to develop, co-create and share innovations in food, agriculture and integrated resource systems. The Global Innoversity is a self-sustaining global program for mutual action learning on metropolitan agriculture in, between and for the metropolitan regions of the world. Its goal is to successfully develop, share and implement a globally acknowledged ‘methodology’ for developing metropolitan agriculture in innovation clusters in metropolitan regions around the world.
This methodology has two distinct parts that uniquely reinforce each other: a new approach to multi-stakeholder cooperation and innovation and a new approach to transdisciplinary and participative knowledge development. The methodology is characterized by a set of simple operating principles. However, implementing these operating principles is far for simple. That’s why the Global Innoversity provides an action-learning platform, facilitation, coaching & training as well as monitoring & reflection. It is the unique combination of services that makes the Global Innoversity a true innovation accelerator. The Global Innoversity has an ambitious but also realistic long-term goal: Ensuring that local metropolitan regions around the world in 2050 will meet the food, agriculture and resource needs of their populations in new, sustainable ways.
