We’ve been busy with start-up related tasks the last couple of months so we thought it would be a good idea to give an update.
-Aquaponics NU has joined forces with Creature DK, an innovative group of young professionals with an interest in urban agriculture and sustainable development.
-We have also been working hard on creating interest in aquaponics as an urban intervention. We’ve been invited to join the “Social Capital Markets” conference “Designing the Future,” being hosted in Malmo, Sweden where we received a sort of “scholarship” to attend and meet others interested in green technologies and potential investors.
-We’re excited about this great opportunity and will be live blogging from the event to keep everyone informed.
-Co-partner Jacob has recently been accepted as a PhD student at the University of Iceland where he’ll be examining the relationship between aquaponics, localized production and economics.
- On May 12, we head south to Køge, where we’ll be exhibiting our new system and hopefully attracting some interest in using aquaponics as a tool for community development in Køge’s new waterfront development.
