Together with Refresh asbl and Romain Boitier, Resilia Solutions is designing a project to monitor individual food waste at home. The project will be in two parallel phases: creating a tool to self-monitor foodwaste at home and setting up a tailored programme for individuals to reduce their food waste depending on their starting point. The tools will be usable by citizens as well as public authorities and those supporting citizens in food waste reduction.

Support to the URBACT BIOCANTEENS network

Portfolio_URBACT_BiocanteensMouans-Sartoux is a city of 10,000 inhabitants located on the French Riviera. Since 1998, the city has been connecting food, health and environmental issues. To overcome the lack of a local organic food offer, a municipal farm was created and two farmers hired to grow vegetables for school canteens, thus meeting 85% of the needs of the three local schools (1,000 meals per day). Public procurement rules were changed so that local producers could answer calls for bids. Since then, the city has been serving daily meals in its schools that are 100% local and organic. Developing this approach, Mouans-Sartoux is now working on local agri-food systems and education to extend the initiative.

The BIOCANTEENS network aims at transferring the practice of Mouans-Sartoux to that of 6 other European cities.

Support to the URBACT Maps network

Portfolio_URBACT_MapsThe MAPS European project aims to enhance former military heritage as key elements for sustainable urban strategies, combining both functional and social aspects. The involvement of fellow cities presenting a similar architectural heritage and comparable territorial characteristics is meant to favour a mutual exchange of experiences, leading to the definition of best practices and replicable schedules which can be subsequently adapted to the needs and expectations of local communities, as expressed by stakeholders and interest groups.

The dismissal of formerly productive settings often poses serious environmental and economic issues that Municipalities have to deal with as political and administrative problems. The main goal of MAPS is to reverse perspectives, highlighting the potentialities of this heritage, albeit discussing all matters related to the plans for their future destination.

Following the approach of social architecture, dismissed military areas can be deemed the new symbols of a more conscious and participated urban planning, oriented to the promotion of cohesion and inclusiveness.

Marcelline supported the MAPS network for the implementations of the cities’ IAPs.
