About the project

Urban gardening is a way to stimulate positive and local dynamics and create a sense of community amongst people who believe that the environment plays a fundamental role in the ecosystem and the climate change adaptation. By participating in the setting up and maintenance of urban gardens, vulnerable young people will engage, connect and feel empowered thanks to the knowledge they will acquire.

The main goal of project URBAN is to encourage active participation and education of the local community members – including disfavoured and threatened with exclusion youth people and local youth eg. migrants, long-term unemployed people – through setting up and maintaining the urban gardens.

Additionally, the project will elaborate an innovative educational method to teach soft skills by garden working to future youth farmers, e.g. interpersonal communication, teamwork, management and planning.
