THE URBFARM PROJECT
We are a European Partnership with a mission to build an education program in “Urban Farming and Entrepreneurship Skills” for adult learners to foster green skills and responsibilities, therefore encourage them to build resilient urban communities and cities. Urban farming can produce income and the creation of new employment opportunities for low-skilled individuals and the wider communities.
The EU Consortium
We are a consortium of 6 European Partner organizations funded by Erasmus+ with long experience in research, project implementation, adult education and knowledge transfer as well as long experience in transnational cooperation form a strong partnership.
“We aim to empower more citizens to start small scale initiatives in urban farming, for instance in their balconies, rooftops, small gardens and public places.”
INNOVATION AND COMMUNITY SPIRIT
The program targets major societal challenges, such as increased unemployment due to the pandemic crisis, up-skilling citizens, climate change, deterioration of life quality and mental health in urban areas, ageing population and loneliness.
