Urban Agriculture 2020, 2nd International Conference on Urban Agriculture and City Sustainability
September 29, 2020 @ 8:00 am - October 1, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Location: Sabadelli Date: 29 September 2020 – 01 October 2020 Link: https://www.wessex.ac.uk/conferences/2020/urban-agriculture-2020
Description: The increasing urban population coupled with limited provision of land and decreasing resources requires new strategies to supply the necessary food. In the last few years, there has been a rapid expansion in initiatives and projects exploring innovative methods and processes for sustainable food production. The majority of these projects are focused on providing alternative models that shift the power back from the global food system to communities and farmers improving. The Urban Agriculture conference will focus on the way cities could embed these new approaches and initiatives to help improve social cohesion, health and wellbeing.
