Eutropian's Daniela Patti, an expert on circular economy and UIA consultant.

Urban Soil 4 Food is a project with three main goals: to change the material flow, to ensure food sovereignty and to increase societal awareness. This requires cycling the material flow of waste to be reused within the cities and thus, reducing the amount of waste in landfills.

UIA Expert Daniela Patti explores Maribor’s experience with “what has happened to the urban gardens, mainly focusing on the possibilities of the future regulations to be put in place; on the trainings provided to entrepreneurs and stakeholders, as part of the Innovation Cycle; and on the Short Food distribution platform.”
