IMAGINE Inclusive Market AGriculture Incubator in North-West Europe
IMAGINE aims at tackling youth unemployment by providing sustainable job prospects in the horticulture sector, more specifically for young people (15-34 years old) who are NEET – not in education, employment or training - in the (peri-)urban areas of North-West Europe.
In these regions, horticulture, urban agriculture and short food supply chains sectors are growing rapidly and require a lot of low-skilled labour. However, job entry rate after a training is currently 20%. Indeed, these sectors face significant barriers to fully develop their potential, including, lack of access to land and weak youth empowerment.
Local organisations can help to overcome these deficiencies by facilitating free access to their hectares of vacant land and by involving young people through an innovative co-production methodology.
IMAGINE will therefore support the development, testing and implementation of different social incubation models (access to land + support) for young people in the peri-urban horticulture sector on the outskirts of London and Paris, in central Belgium, in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and in Eindhoven.
The objective is also to create a transnational network in charge of social innovation issues in (peri-)urban horticulture to ensure long-term effects and help organisations to replicate the model.
