We inspire

The foundation aims to maximize support and convince policy makers to rethink their cities by integrating sustainable food production in their urban planning. This all starts with inspiration and awareness


The foundation can build on many years of experience growing safe and healthy food with minimal use of natural resources and extremely low environmental impact.

We share this vast knowledge of integrated food production as well as our extensive network, making us an essential link for cities ready to take on the challenge of creating sustainable green belts.

As a businesswoman and spokesperson for the Netherlands Trade Association, SUD founder Meiny Prins can count on a vast network of experts in the field of sustainable urban development to support her aim to realize Sustainable Urban Deltas worldwide.
