Short description
In the third edition of the OpenAgri journal, the UIA expert Miguel Sousa, gives a complete overview of the latest development and challenges faced by the project and demonstrate how an urban policy experimentation is seeking to create new jobs, skills, start-ups and innovation in agri-food sector, while increasing the level of resilience and sustainability of the City of Milan.

Through a wide range of activities combining living labs, artistic residence and jobs shadowing, OpenAgri is currently offering a major contribution to the establishment of more sustainable spatial, socio-economic, and environmental linkages between urban and peri-urban areas.
