Dirt Cafe’ Sitopia

Of the various initiatives geared to develop a deeper understanding of the underlying implications food has on human life, few could be more pertinent than a discussion around a table. In this spirit, the Urban Design Lab in December 2009 contributed to the climate change discussion, joining an event in Copenhagen sharing experience in food in the economic, conceptual, agricultural, and design oriented fields to explore the connections between food, climate, agricultural land, and design. The participants had a pleasurable time, and it was observed that “we Americans know how to discuss in ‘panels’ and ‘networking meetings.’ Few of us are used to sharing thoughts around lunches and in a spirited event like the Dirt Cafe’ Sitopia.”
