Free event

For the first time in human history, the urban population has surpassed the rural population. This has led to an imbalance between cities and agricultural production areas and has alienated citizens from their food. 

The phenomenon of urban agriculture, which is spreading to many cities around the world, represents a form of resistance and redemption. 

In the Colombian city of Cali, for example, urban gardens have become tools of education, social inclusion and food sovereignty. 

In this meeting we discover different realities from Italy and around the world, united by the collaboration between institutions and civil society and the desire to create an active community to regain awareness of their spaces.
