EFUA “ACTION” Conference 2024

Event dedicated to advancing urban agriculture policies and practices across Europe. During this conference, the focus is very much upon ‘ACTION’.
We aim to provide a “full-on” participative agenda, giving everyone the chance to have their say on the future of urban agriculture (UA) in Europe and beyond. However, we’re doing things differently; we’re starting down on the farm, where the real work of UA is done! So, don’t come along expecting a typical conference format, with a long list of dry presentations to make your head spin.

Instead, we look forward to hosting a highly interactive event featuring lively field visits/discussions, 'ready-to-implement' insights, knowledge exchange and stimulating workshops; these will explore and showcase the latest innovations in UA, whilst offering new perspectives for linking action on the ground to policies at EU, national and city level. Additionally, our conference format will ensure numerous formal and informal networking opportunities with the chance to meet other UA enthusiasts and professionals from across the EU.

Our presenters and hosts will include real practitioners (i.e. urban farmers and urban gardeners), EU policymakers, city representatives, community groups and NGOs.

We will also launch our UA Manifesto, “Let’s Grow Together”, at the conference and to inaugurate the first session of the wider “European Forum on Urban Agriculture” as a community of stakeholders from across Europe. It’s your opportunity to help guide and steer a new and comprehensive vision for urban agriculture – so “join us” in Brussels.

The event is hosted by Boerenbond at the Ateliers des Tanneurs in Brussels as part of the EFUA project, funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme: EFUA project.
