Meat the future
We are a network of makers, thinkers, educators and supporters. With members in 44 countries, we are the international network for anyone interested in the debate on our future – in which biology and technology are fusing.
In a landscape of traditional nature organizations, we are the only group that approaches the concept of nature in a new manner. Preserving nature is of great importance, but we must also dare to look ahead. Will we grow meat without slaughtering animals? Embrace the robot as a colleague? Earn ECO coins for sustainable actions? Will men have babies one day? We want to go forward – not back – to nature.
We explore how technology becomes so omnipresent, complex, intimate and autonomous – a nature of its own. We stimulate discussion, initiate publications, events and traveling expositions on how to dream, build and live in the next nature.
Meat the Future
The time has come to start a debate about the future of meat. Scientists see cultured meat as a sustainable and animal-friendly alternative for meat. However, before we can make the decision whether or not we want to eat cultured meat, we will have to explore the gastronomic culture that comes with it.
Meat The Future and Cube Design Museum present cultured meat dishes that we could find on our plates in the future. These dishes were created by a team of chefs, designers, engineers and artists. As cultured meat is still in its infancy, you cannot (yet) try the dishes. Though they may serve as food for thought and discussion!
