Agricultural projects require a multiplicity of skills and knowledge in order to fit sustainably into the urban landscape.
This is why the Metropolitan City of Bologna, together with other entities, is promoting the SESAME online micro-learning training course "Problems and opportunities of metropolitan agriculture". A training aimed at political representatives and technical operators of local authorities, available at this link: https://bit.ly/3uOwx2f.
To succeed in implementing agricultural projects, local officials and administrators need to be informed about the challenges of urban and peri-urban agriculture, its opportunities, and about the barriers encountered by proponents of these projects.
From the conception to the implementation of an urban and peri-urban agriculture project, the course can affect several local government departments: legal, urban planning, social, environment, urban policy making, water, infrastructure, communication and many others.
The course is free, open to all, free access and includes 5 micro-learning training modules available in three languages (French, Italian and Catalan).The training course "Problems and opportunities of metropolitan agriculture" has been tested in Barcelona, Bologna and Marseille and has been conceived within the framework of the SESAME project funded by the European ERASMUS+ program (https://bit.ly/3JunMOD).
