UrbanA Fellow

A number of participants, known as UrbanA fellows, will attend all four Arena events. UrbanA fellows will contribute to the continuity of the Urban Arena by sharing their knowledge or skills and reporting on their involvement, by writing blog posts, for example. UrbanA fellows were chosen via a public call for applicants in August & September 2019.

The UrbanA team will also invite interested participants to propose and organize a session or sessions during the Arena events.

There will be an opportunity for participants in different locations to get involved with Arena side events, which are smaller co-creative spaces organised prior to the four main events.

Project: H2020 Urban Arenas for sustainable and just cities



In order to tackle most of these issues, Lille will create an innovative device: a collective kitchen that articulates various actions towards the district’s population:

1. Providing a shared space to socialize. There you may cook, eat, meet people, and make new experiences (including an audio-visual studio, and a vertical agriculture demonstrator);

2. Organizing workshops, mostly against waste and malnutrition;

3. Creating a virtuous ecosystem of training and job opportunities: crash courses, and meeting with employers on the one hand; restaurants and food processing activities on the other hand.

Most part of the innovation lies within the fact that, contrary to the usual public equipment, the kitchen will respond to an original collective governance. Furthermore, it will be financially autonomous while receiving part of the benefits from private activity operating in the vicinity.

A dense prefiguration program will anticipate, during the first 2 years of the program, the inauguration of the building.

Marcelline is the Expert of this project, capitalising on its experience as well as providing pieces of advice and recommendations.
