For the events of “Cultivons notre jardin” promoted by Institut Français Italia (IFI) in autumn 2018, IFI and Urban Lab (ex Urban Center Metropolitano) propose “Nature in the city”, a series of initiatives dedicated to the relation between nature and the city. The first appointment deals with the link between urban agriculture and food policies to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the Agenda 2030. Experimental practices (often with a bottom-up approach), local public policies, geographically variable collaborations between the public and private sectors and the citizens are some of the issues discussed, in the attempt to provide an overview of the projects developed in France and Italy and assess their actual impact on the city economy.
