Edible Cities Network Final Project Meeting
Best Practices and Lessons Learned over the past five years
4-5 September 2023, Humboldt Forum & HU Berlin, Senatssaal
Over the past five years, the Edible Cities Network project has been working towards making cities around the world better places to live through the integration of Edible City Solutions (ECS) in our cities - from urban gardens to vertical farms and community kitchens. Join us for our final project meeting and explore the best practices and lessons learned during the project lifetime - together with representatives of the thirty-two consortium partners, including universities, research institutes, local city administrations, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and other Edible City Solutions around the world.
During the two-day event you will get the chance to hear from the City Teams in the Front Runner Cities, who designed and implemented different ECS—from community-supported agriculture programmes and water recycling technologies to networking strategies for green city initiatives—in their Living Labs. You will also meet representatives of the City Teams in the Follower Cities, who co-developed Edible City Master Plans for their own urban contexts and to tackle specific societal challenges.
On September 4th, the meeting will be held at the Humboldt Forum in Berlin (Schloßplatz 1, 10178 Berlin), while the Senatsaal of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Unter den Linden 6, 10117 Berlin) will be the venue on the second day.
Attendance is free of charge and there will soon be the chance to reserve your spot.
You can register for the event on the EdiCitNet website.
