The Challenges of Globalization
São Paulo KOSMOS Workshop
Berlin meets São Paulo: Cities for All - Livable and Sustainable
Date:  6th- 10th April, 2015
Location: University of São Paulo (USP) - FEA, IRI, FAU, IEE
Transforming large cities into sustainable and livable regions represents one of the greatest challenges of our times. Rapid and compact urbanization courses of action have been responsible for the creation of a myriad of megacities around the globe. This development has led to heavily populated areas with a significant public overload on urban intrastructure. The sacrifice of green areas is intrinsically connected with the damage of natural environments for cities in terms of climate change, biodiversity, water management and food production, not to mention the rise of serious socio-economic problems emanating thereof.
Berlin is Germany’s largest city and has a long tradition in urban gardening, recycling, solid waste management, as well as wastewater recycling. For this purpose, the Humboldt University and the University of São Paulo have created  a forum of research and discussion - KOSMOS Workshop - comprised of professors and students, in order to assess the challenges of livable and sustainable cities, from the viewpoint of risks, challenges and opportunities.
The KOSMOS Workshop will introduce integrated green technologies geared towards the preservation and creation of green infrastructure and biodiversity in urban areas, including sustainable food production teamed with energy, water and waste management, as well as innovation, ecological design and urban farming. Solutions can only arise from a joint effort at the economic, political government and individual levels, in a close relationship with academic research. Therefore, international scientific cooperation in environmental education is necessary in order to explore the new challenges and to unveil joint solutions.

                          Eng. Volker Minks, M.A. Agricultural Engineering, PhD candidate HU Berlin
Green areas are the natural habitats of flora and fauna, but are constantly in danger of being destroyed. The use of urban land has become ecologically unbalanced, with currently affects the biodiversity as well as the relationship between city, people and the environment. The lecture introduces the students to forms and effects of green urban design, innovative ecological design technologies and possibilities for urban agriculture and horticulture production for food security that helps render the urban environment sustainable, crucial to addressing the economic, demographic, social and environmental challenges in cities such as the case of Berlin.

Conference        The Challenges of Cities in a Globalized World: opportunities and limits for agriculture in urban ecosystems
                           Prof. Heide Hoffmann, HU Berlin
Green within the city - opportunities and limits of agriculture in urban ecosystems. The todays urban challenges and opportunities concerning space, contamination hazards, ecological, economical and social aspects. Urban agriculture and horticulture provide multiple functions and benefits to urban dwellers and cities. Their advantages are manifold: improved climate, biodiversity, healthy nutrition, reduced loss of food due to inadequate transport and storage, poverty reduction through income opportunities and possible own consumption, education, leisure, and a greener livable city with all its ecological benefits. This lecture discusses the potential and the specific situation of agriculture and horticulture activities for food production in cities.

Lecture 3          Aquaculture/aquaponic gardening: a contribution to food security in Cities
                          Prof. Cornelia Oschmann, HU Berlin
Aquaculture plays an increasingly important role to protected wild capture fisheries and in contribution to global food security. Presently almost half of the total fish and shellfish consumption is produced by aquaculture. The challenge is to provide sustainable production to meet the increasing demand for nutritious food. Aquaculture also has its risks through overload and destruction of mangroves forests. Sustainable and innovative methods are required in order to produce greater quantities of high quality food and adapt to climate change and increasing resources scarify. Aquaponic gardening links aquaculture with hydroponic vegetable production.
