Training pioneering entrepreneurs in urban agriculture: a model of curriculum based on the URBAN GREEN TRAIN project experience
The URBAN GREEN TRAIN (URBAN GReen Education for ENTteRprising Agricultural INnovation) project has been funded by the ERASMUS+ programme with the aim to encourage the creation of pioneering business initiatives in urban agriculture (UA), by reinforcing the so called knowledge triangle among education, research and business. Run in 2014-2017 by a partnership of public and private organisations from Italy, France, Germany and the Netherlands, the URBAN GREEN TRAIN project has developed, tested and made available to different types of learners a pilot international, cross-sectoral, multi-targeted training path on Urban Agriculture Entrepreneurship. The present work illustrates the Model of Curriculum and the Recommendations developed by the project to highlight the main lessons learnt and the necessary support for planning further collaborative UA Entrepreneurship education initiatives and encouraging innovation in UA.
