Become friends with Edible City Solutions (ECS)

The EdiCitNet project

EdiCitNet is a European H2020 project dealing with Edible City Solutions (ECS): food-related nature-based solutions in cities, sensitive to social integration and concerned with closing local water, nutrient and energy
loops. The project brings together 35 international partners (cities, universities, SMEs, NGOs), sharing these common goals:

  • Connect communities, municipalities, SMEs, NGOs, researchers and ECS initiatives.
  • Improve multi-functionality, sustainability and overall ecosystem services of urban infrastructure.
  • Contribute to a paradigm shift towards re-use oriented, cross-sectoral management of resources in cities.
  • Foster social cohesion to enhance human health and well-being. 
  • Boost the local green economy and promote the creation of new sustainable businesses & jobs.

The EdiCitNet & friends session

The EdiCitNet & friends session, part of the Annual meeting of the project, aims to gather technical, practical and local knowledge on ECS. Representatives from H2020 NBS projects, local food-related initiatives and
experts from all over the world will be sharing their views and concerns about the transition towards the Edible Cities of the future.
