Urban Farming and Entrepreneurship for Adults

Overurbanization has led to a considerable pressure on establishing an ecological harmonization in the relationship between natural environment and human beings. Against this background, the benefits and the positive impact from urban farming are numerous. Οrganic and vertical farming in and around cities can boost social, economic and environmental sustainability. Among others, urban farming contributes to the mitigation of the climate change implications, allows consumers produce local food and curbs at a significant level air pollution in big urban areas.

The uRBFARM project addresses these aspects and offers a training program which combines face-to-face and on-line learning in urban farming and entrepreneurship skills tailored to low-skilled adults’capacities, potential and needs provided in the uRBFARM Massive and Open Online Course (MOOC).
