After having realised a first mission for a shared vegetable garden project in Aubervilliers, the Acticity association is currently in Rabat for a second mission for the peri-urban Agroecological Farmers Market.
Feedback on the first mission of Acticity in Aubervilliers
The first mission of the four students of the association Acticity consisted in a social impact assessment for the shared garden of 104 Barbus launched by UpUpUp and supported by the social company DVUp. Through this project of participatory space recapture, UpUpUp acts as an incubator for local dynamics, and accompanies the inhabitants of social housing towards the autonomy of the project. The social impact study was made possible thanks to 220 people interviewed and 20 qualitative interviews conducted. It allowed the students to "develop their adaptability", by applying the methodology of (Im)prove (FR) to the realities on the field.
"It brough us a clearer inner vision over our own work and allowed us to better acknowledge how it is perceived by the inhabitants and various partners we work with, and help us chosing on which parts of the project to focus, according to the needs of the community." (Eulalie Blanc, Co-founder of UpUpUp and Associate at DVTUp)
Mission in progress in Rabat
The Acticity team is currently carrying out a mission for the Farmers' Market, in partnership with the Agroecological Initiatives Network in Morocco (RIAM) (FR). The project promotes the production and sale of peri-urban agroecological products, allowing to recreate the ties between urban and rural areas, as well as between urban dwellers and producers.
