«Connections and missing links within urban agriculture, food and food systems»


NOVA FCSH, Edifício I&D, Sala Multiusos 2, Piso 4

The scientific event will take place on Thursday, April 26th (presentations and debate) and Friday morning 27th (field visit – to be confirmed), 2018 at Universidade Nova de Lisboa Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas, Av. De Berna, 26-C, Lisbon, Portugal.

So far urban agriculture - UA and food have been increasingly part of various research programs and activities and at the same time leading Portuguese institutions in these fields have been organising scientific events with significant production. What seems missing though, and this is normal with such a vibrant dynamics, is to better connect the different fields of knowledge and disciplines that have been involved so far. Therefore the focus of this call and its expected added value, is to offer an open platform to engage debates on how to connect the various disciplines and different sectors that have been implicated on food and UA so far and that are contributing, from their own perspective and driving logics to a better understanding of the field. 

The number of participants will be limited in order to ensure time to share presentations and discussion among all participants. Participants will have to pay a minor fee that includes coffee breaks and lunch. Dinner is optional and on own expenses.
