Ciudades verdes y menos vulnerables

En los últimos años la agricultura urbana ha ganado notoriedad y se está expandiendo rápidamente en ciudades alrededor del mundo. La actual pandemia ha acelerado este interés; 2020 ha sido un año clave para la expansión de esta práctica. Sin embargo, la agricultura urbana no es un fenómeno reciente y su evolución está ligada a momentos históricos relevantes y a necesidades sociales. Este taller tendrá tres ejes temáticos y contará con expositores que presentarán casos aplicados en los Estados Unidos y Latinoamérica. Primero, se hablará sobre momentos históricos en la práctica de la agricultura urbana, particularmente en el contexto de los Estados Unidos. Segundo, se analizarán sus beneficios medioambientales (lo que incluye su aporte para la mitigación y adaptación al cambio climático), económicos, sociales y para la salud. Y tercero, se presentarán ejemplos de la práctica de agricultura en escuelas, hogares, techos de alimentos y en otras instituciones. La idea del taller es incentivar su práctica en zonas urbanas, y que las personas de la ciudad se conecten con las experiencias y los retos que se viven en el campo. 

Greener and less vulnerable cities

In recent years urban agriculture has gained notoriety and is expanding rapidly in cities around the world. The current pandemic has accelerated this interest, making 2020 a key year for the expansion of this practice. However, urban agriculture is not a recent phenomenon and its evolution is linked to relevant historical moments and social needs. This workshop will have three thematic axes and will have speakers who will present cases applied in the United States and Latin America. First, we will discuss historical moments in the practice of urban agriculture, particularly in the context of the United States. Then we will discuss its environmental benefits (including its contribution to mitigating and adapting to climate change), as well as economic, social, and health benefits. Lastly, we will share examples of urban agriculture in schools, homes, food roofs, and other institutions. Overall this workshop aims to promote urban agriculture, and to connect urban communities with the experiences and challenges that are experienced in the countryside.
