The world’s population is constantly changing, and according to the UN, it will reach 9.7 billion people by 2050. We are facing a major demographic challenge that is increasing the need for food. The challenge of tomorrow is to feed this population, which is increasingly concentrated in cities.
This phenomenon leads to urban sprawl, buildings are constructed on fertile surfaces and the pressure around these resources is becoming ever more intense.
Urban agriculture is emerging as one of the solutions to these global phenomena with the ambition of founding another more sustainable consumption model.
To do this, Cueillette Urbaine proposes to use the roofs of buildings in urban areas to grow fruit and vegetables in local food networks.
