European Forum on Urban Agriculture

Goal: By 2050, the majority (67 %) of people will be living in urban areas. This is one reason why urban agriculture (UA) is becoming a subject of growing interest. Apart from providing fresh food to urban areas, indoor farms and rooftop gardens will also be a source of environmental, social and health-related benefits as well as economic development opportunities. UA also addresses climate change and allows food to be grown closer to home. The EU-funded EFUA project will investigate the role of UA as an innovator in the agricultural and food sector and the urban economy. It will promote UA by engaging stakeholders, co-building knowledge and communicating it to the public. Special networking methods will be used to access cutting-edge knowledge.

Our FACTS Conference to be held on 29th and 30th March will provide a wonderful opportunity to network with UA stakeholders from around the Globe. We are planning an exciting and inspiring programme for our event. First and foremost, we want to make our digital conference, lively, stimulating and fun for you. Along with our research findings, we’ll be presenting very diverse content; with videos, storytelling and interactive media, all intended to retain your attention over the 2 days.
