Workshop: Agricultural Perspectives in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona31 October 2022
We kindly invite you to participate in the workshop entitled ‘Agricultural Perspectives in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona’, organized by URBAG and sponsored by the Maria de Maeztu programme of excellence at ICTA-UAB. The workshop will take place at ICTA-UAB on Friday, 25th of NOVEMBER 2022, from 9:30 to 14h.
In the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona, we observe two contradicting developments regarding urban agriculture that reflect a current global trend: while urban gardening is on vogue and supported by municipal actions, over the past decades the agricultural land has been reduced from 20% to 8-9% of the AMB surface.
This co-creation workshop will bring together a broad variety of stakeholders in urban agriculture, including the private sector, governance bodies across different scales, NGOs and academia to discuss:
(a) what are desired and feasible future scenarios for urban agriculture in the Barcelona Metropolitan Area,
(b) which are the pathways to alter the decline and to increase urban agriculture and to overcome current obstacles.
Please register here before the 17th of November 2022.
