U-START: U-rban farming STARarter kiT for young refugees 

Semi-Finalist

#U-START: Cultivating new lives. Thessaloniki is at the forefront of managing the refugee crisis and is serving as a hub providing refugees with accommodation and training programs, to enhance their inclusion in the city life. #U-START is an idea for a platform that will have a dual function: to offer specialized guidance to young refugees, so that they may develop their skills in urban farming; and to invite owners (public and private entities) of small, unused, urban spaces to offer these for urban farming by posting relevant information onto the platform. Through #U-START refugees will be able to create urban community gardens and farms and sell their produce to the local market.
