Waltman Jacob, Aquaponics NU

Posted by SOCAP on April 17th, 2012

We asked Waltman Jacob Co-Founder and Head of Development of Aquaponics NU and one of our Social Entrepreneur Scholarship Winners how he is designing the future. Here is his answer:

My goal as an entrepreneur is to provide agency to people living in urban areas where the centralised food system has severed the connection between food producers and food consumers. The ideology behind urban production is two-fold. Primarily, it is seen as a way to mitigate unsustainable practices used in conventional production I.e. petrochemicals, food-miles etc. Additionally, it is a method of creating community around food and re-educating people about the importance of food, and about the need to design sustainable systems of production.
