About this Event

The EdiCitNet project

EdiCitNet, a European H2020 project, deals with Edible City Solutions (ECS): food-related nature-based solutions in cities, sensitive to social integration and focused on closing local water, nutrient and energy loops. Our aim is to help transition towards “Edible Cities” that actively pursue environmental and social justice. The project brings together 35 international partners (cities, universities, SMEs, NGOs), sharing these common goals:

  • Connect communities, cities, SMEs, NGOs, researchers and ECS initiatives.
  • Improve multi-functionality, sustainability and overall ecosystem services of urban infrastructure.
  • Contribute to paradigm shift towards re-use oriented, cross-sectoral management of resources in cities.
  • Foster social cohesion to enhance human health and well-being.
  • Boost the local green economy, creating new sustainable businesses & jobs.
