Urban Allotment Gardens in European Cities – Future, Challenges and Lessons Learned
The Action is focused on creating a research platform on which Allotment Gardens (AG) and their relevance for sustainable urban development in Europe will be comprehended and managed, and also their impacts from social, ecological and urban design perspectives will be studied. The multi-character and partly contradictory nature of the AG makes it a relevant issue to be studied within different European urban contexts. The relevance and potential of AG for urban development so far has not been studied from a European perspective. Therefore, through selected case studies and in-depth research, the Action will contribute to a better understanding of framing conditions for policy measurements in different European countries through different outputs.
