Urban Food & Design

2019 marks another close co-operation of VIENNA DESIGN WEEK and the Vienna Business
Agency by presenting their second collaboration under the Urban Food & Design format. This year,
the Vienna Business Agency will call upon the city’s creative professionals with a challenge to
submit solutions addressing the theme of consumption. After all, in 30 years from now, close to two
thirds of the world population will live in cities. To ensure the liveability of cities, their inhabitants
must be supplied efficiently and sustainably; this calls for alternative forms of consumption and
innovative ways of thinking. It is the goal of this challenge to look into possible solutions to these
questions and to propose ideas for their implementation.
The theme of the challenge will again result in an intense programme. The selected projects by
Vienna’s creative professionals will be introduced during VIENNA DESIGN WEEK in the context of
talks, tours, presentations and an exhibition.
