Article

The wicked sustainability problems that we are increasingly facing not only require new ways of knowledge production, but also challenge our traditional educational system. More and more importance is attached to educational practices and experiments focusing on transdisciplinary problem framing, a pluralistic search for solutions and active collab...

Onze voedselproductie is wereldwijd verantwoordelijk voor ongeveer een kwart van de broeikasgasuitstoot. Er is een groeiende eensgezindheid dat het huidige landbouw- en voedselsysteem moet veranderen. De huidige situatie lijkt echter eerder op een status quo dan op het doordacht doorvoeren van een transitie. In dit hoofdstuk argumenteren Charlotte...

Local food systems are increasingly receiving political support across the globe. As part of this trend, food policy councils (FPCs) are generally considered to be ideal governance platforms in the transition to just, sustainable and democratic localized food systems. However, insight into the governance processes to transform local food systems is...
Article
Urban agriculture (UA) has turned into a diverse and complex movement. Important challenges will be to set accurate expectations by civil society in relation to UA development, and to find ways to discuss UA in governance and collaboration networks from an aggregate point of view. However, analytical tools that allow comprehensive study of UA initi...

In urban planning, peri-urban areas are often addressed with an urban-centric view on development, disregarding the multifunctional and dynamic opportunities that these spaces offer. As a consequence, we argue that land use functions such as agriculture do not reach their full potential, despite the increasing enthusiasm for peri-urban and urban ag...

A growing movement is advocating UA, but future prospects are limited by variability, unclear expectations, vague responsibilities and leadership in the UA movement. We wonder whether the poor understanding of UA governance is associa...
Article
Full-text available
As part of cities’ increasing commitment to sustainable development, local food systems are becoming a policy priority. In this article we focus on the case of a local food system in Ghent, Belgium. We adopt the notion of Hajer et al. (2015) that top-down steering of environmental issues (so-called “cockpit-ism”) is insufficient, incomplete and in...
Chapter
How can agriculture contribute to the sustainable development of European cities? How can agriculture and horticulture create vital urban spaces that have new social and ecological qualities and are also economically viable? Urban Agriculture Europe is the first comprehensive, transdisciplinary publication about urban agriculture in Europe. Apart...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents the results of case study research on urban agriculture (UA) in Philadelphia. From a city region's perspective, the gamut of initiatives—including community engagement, policy advocacy, formal UA governance, enterprises and supporting organizations or institutions—are studied as an UA movement. By problematizing and scrutinizing...
