hodnota fotka

Value description

Sufficient quantity of high-quality foods from local sources is an important aspect for maintaining a balance between social, environmental and economic factors. Good food is essential for the health of the population, development and support of local agriculture, the local community, healthy economy, and reduction in the environmental footprint of imported foods. Brno is a rapidly growing metropolis and the provision of sufficient quality local foods thus creates a potential for healthy development of the whole city.

Contribution to the city

The benefit for Brno will be a healthier and more food-provided community, vital and resilient local economy, reduction in energy demand, emissions and waste. Furthermore, a healthy local eco-system, greening and restoring disused local areas, creating new jobs and support to local communities. Food self-sufficiency will also increase the resilience of the local ecosystem against climate change.

Dobrý den, nejsem si jistý zda dobře rozumím termínu \"potravinová soběstačnost města Brna\". Jak si město Brno zajistí např. obilí na mouku z ploch příslušných městu? To je spíš záležitost kraje. Produkce masa- nevím kolik se ted aktuálně vyprodukuje na území města Brna masa, ale to číslo asi bude mizivé a v budoucnu asi těžko půjde postativt více statků v sousedství městské zástavby. Možná tak saláty, to je pravda, to si město zajistí samo.

Contribution to the city
Ćástečné samozásobení obyvatel - tím odpadne část dopravy kvůli zásobování, zvýší se zeleň a biodiverzita,odpadne část bioodpadů, podpoří se zdravý životní styl,umožní se hlavně seniorům zdravá aktivita, prohloubí se vztah i dětí k přírodě a aktivitě.
