    The Covid-19 pandemic took Krakow partners to the decision of hosting online their Transnational Meeting last year but left all partners with the desire to travel to the Polish city and see with their own eyes the wonders that have been created in terms of community urban gardens. Well, the Krakow team set themselves in the quest of completing what, in their opinion, was an “unfinished business”: the possibility to welcome all partners in Krakow before the end of the project’s lifetime so that they could see what has been implemented in their city during RU:RBAN.

  • A Million Food Stories , by CIM Região de Coimbra

    Food and its entire cycle - from breeding, to cultivation, to production, to cooking, to the table - reflect the cultural experiences and food heritage of a people and its territory. The Coimbra Region is characterised by natural and landscape diversity, the result of physical, biological and historical-cultural influences that have interacted and still interact here, designing the identity of the territory in its various aspects

    One of the basic objectives of the Coimbra Region Intermunicipal Community is to optimise the sustainable development of tourism and the economic activities related to this sector by strengthening and integrating the existing resources and structures in a more organised and integrated way, encouraging and acting towards integrated planning, the creation and promotion of inter-municipal projects which unify the offer and image of the region as a quality destination to live or visit.

    Basically, in the Coimbra Region we see gastronomy not just as a culinary art, but as an area of knowledge, with the potential to bring together the local dynamic, involving producers, consumers, professionals, students, amateurs and ... tourists!
