Summary of the project
Ruralopoli is a box where the sustainable production can live together with the capacity building and the awareness raising on the topics related to the SDGs 12 and 13.The project aims at designing a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), which includes all the previous experiences and focuses on the interaction with the territory and its citizens to be proactive. Thi idea stems from the involvement of Slow Food with other organisations in building models for sustainable production and consumption. The CSA works as a management model where the producsts are environmental friendly thanks to the gained awarenees of the community who lives there. The farmers involved already use techniques for soil regeneration and innovative seeds to answer to the challenges linked to climate change. These activities will be coupled with the energy cycle to set up a system that uses the waste of the agronomic cycle and becomes self sufficient.
