SUSTAINABLE DESIGN FOR A BETTER WORLD
EDIBLE CITIES aims to trasform the underused of Shanghai into function green spaces for urban farming where people can grow their own and participate in the life of their community.
EDIBLE CITIES reinvents Shanghai by building a new relationship between urban residents and nature.
It creates opportunities for all to creatively engage with technology, farming and urban life.
EDIBLE CITIES trasforms a megacity like Shanghai with feasible and integrated solutions.
There are: urban farming, green corridors, community-based urban living, food production and the green economy.
EDIBLE CITIES participates in a national and global movement.
We work with young creative people, makers and innovators, students and researchers.
We are in dialogue with institutions in China and abroad, including New York University Shanghai, Tongii University, the Milan Polytechnic and many others.
