    Edible Cities Network Global Lunch Talk #8

    Building a Network of Green Initiatives for Resilience and Increased Impact

    Online, 12 April 2023, 12.00-13.00 CEST

    with Paul de Graaf from Groen010, a democratic association of green initiatives and social green entrepreneurs in Rotterdam and Coöperatie Ondergrond, an organisation that initiates, designs, realises and maintains food forests and edible green spaces based on food forest principles in and around the city.

    The goal of the Edible Cities Network Living Lab in Rotterdam is to develop a framework for engaging and organising edible green initiatives in a way that ensures their continuity and improves their positive impact on the city. Join this free webinar to learn more about the democratic and inclusive approach that the City Team adopted to achieve this.

    During the session, we will explore the structure of the City Team and its different working groups, and point out the main lessons learned so far. If you're interested in replicable techniques for making your city a greener and more livable place by creating a self-organised network of green initiatives, this is an event you shouldn't miss!
