The main aim is to show a miniature of the type of farms that sustainability research says has the potential to respect the so-called planetary boundaries and the ecological boundaries of the Baltic Sea. These farming systems can if part of sustainable food systems potentially reduces kg CO2 eq/cap and year from basic food consumption with up to 85%. The miniature farm also undertake the task to show that the food one person needs for one year can be produced from 2000sqm – the amount of land each person get if the arable land on the planet is divided equally between people living on the planet. As the experiment grows and we harvest different recipes are created and a food cultures emerges.
The 2000m2 Experiment at Rosendals’ Garden explores what Sweden would look like if transformed to the farming systems science says contribute in the best way to Agenda 2030; What are the farming systems that are just (2000sqm/person and year) from a global perspective and able to contribute with food that provides health for the many people, the Baltic Sea and the Planet? What new food cultures would there be? And what are the transformative pathways – the possibilities to get there?
If food systems would develop in line with current trends, by 2050 they will have used two-thirds of the remaining carbon budget if global warming should be limited to 1.5°C. (IPCC Global warming of 1.5°C. Summary for policymakers 2018) Food systems connects all the Sustainable Development Goals and are essential to meet the transformational objective of the UN’s 2030 agenda (Pavan Sutkhev, EAT Forum 2016)
