About the conference
Are you dreaming of a job in urban agriculture? Do you want to contribute to urban agriculture as a thriving industry? Save the date! Nabolagshager will be hosting ‘Growing Jobs in Urban Agriculture’ on the 23rd of October from 10:00 to 16:30. This workshop will provide an interactive space for participants to explore business models for urban agriculture.
‘Growing Jobs in Urban Agriculture’ aims to facilitate exchange among urban agriculture experts, students, and supporters on a major challenge urban farmers are facing: the need to develop business models that are tailored to their community’s needs and their customers’ desires.
The workshop will be highly interactive with short sessions of knowledge transfer from experts in the field accompanied by space to work in groups through real-life cases. Our goal is that participants will understand deeply how to develop their own business model for an urban agriculture enterprise – becoming equipped with the necessary tools to do so.
Conference topics will include those that are key to developing a relevant, successful and tailored business model:
- Maximising impact
- Forging new alliances across disconnected domains
- Finding new synergies
- Using social media tools effectively
- Key resources
- Who are the customers?
- Integrating outreach to business
- Where does the money go?
- Grant/funding schemes
This workshop will be an excellent occasion for sharing, learning and discussing urban agriculture business models. Details about the speakers, cases and registration will be available very soon. We look forward to seeing you there!
