This international collaboration represents an opportunity for further development in urban agriculture, as the two organizations are now sharing their expertise, their knowledge and working practices, as well as their research dedicated spaces.
JUNIA’s goal is also to strengthen its ties with local collectivities and organizations as part of an urban agriculture development project by building an international experts’ network.
« This partnership is part of the development of an international network of urban agriculture research and training organizations, which began more than 10 years now ago with the first urban agriculture summer school in France. The creation of this network continued with the first French-speaking urban agriculture research workshops, held in Montreal in 2018, Bordeaux in 2019 and Brussels/Gembloux in 2022. » Eric DUCHEMIN, scientific director at AU/LAB
