IoT.ATL Living Labs Kick-Off
April 22, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join IoT.ATL to help change the future of food | April 22nd | 1-3pm
Help us launch the IoT.ATL Living Labs and take the next step in building resilient communities by connecting people, companies and technology to forge a stronger path for the future. Leaders from our core partners will announce the winners of the inaugural IoT.ATL Living Labs, which will identify scalable AgTech solutions addressing the need for resilient urban food systems. The winners will create AgTech installations in containers along The Atlanta Beltline to test and validate their AgTech technologies. These companies are creating the future of food and urban agriculture to benefit communities across the globe as the world urbanizes.
According to the UN, two-thirds of the global population will live in urban areas by 2050 and food resilience and urban sustainability are global challenges. The IoT.ATL AgTech Living Labs will help identify new resilient solutions to food production for urban environments. The AgTech solutions are focused on themes of: 1) education and training, 2) equitable and inclusive community engagement, 3) urban economic development, and 4) future farming and IoT technology.
