All EU and non-EU countries face the challenge of social inclusion of vulnerable groups. A #EUSDR-related project found a possible solution: by bringing all groups together (authorities, vulnerable and marginalized groups and interested groups, as NGOs), #AgriGo4Cities thought of social inclusion measures, enhanced participatory governance, promoting sustainable urban development, making urban and peri-urban gardening more visible in the Danube region.
By its action, the project aims at helping vulnerable groups to use participatory approaches in urban agriculture, to learn how to organize, empower and raise voice in public-decision making and also bring local authorities closer to the communities, by working together for the same purpose: community welfare.
Concretely, #AgriGo4Cities helps interested groups in identifying the good practices of participatory urban agriculture, establishing a transnational learning environment. In this way, vulnerable social groups will be actively involved in the planning process, together with the local authorities and all possible unused spaces in urban areas would be used for urban gardening and attract local communities for different activities.
