With the new year dawning and PURPLE looking to the future with a new set of statutes  coming into force, so too did the Horizon Europe project FOODCITYBOOST begin its 48 month lifespan.

The project began its journey on January 1st, with 20 partners from 10 countries due to collaborate on exploring the nature and potential of urban and peri-urban agriculture and the interplay between the two as well as upon rural food systems. It is a piece of work within which PURPLE is due to play a key role, as coordinator of a multi-actor stakeholder platform which will serve to help shape future urban agricuture policy and related legal tools.

This website will carry frequent updates on the project, its work and its progress.
