The online course and app are developed as part of the URBAN project. The project aims to encourage active participation and education of the local community members – including disfavored and threatened with exclusion youth people and local youth, for example migrants/refugees, long-term unemployed people – through setting up and maintaining the urban gardens. Additionally, the project elaborates an innovative educational method to teach soft skills by garden working to future youth farmers, e.g. interpersonal communication, teamwork, management and planning.

The online course is provided via the e-learning platform and app. The platform includes case studies and training modules providing the knowledge needed to create an urban garden and turn it into a meeting point for social integration, as well as important tips and info for future youth urban gardeners. The URBAN app is specifically designed for urban gardeners. It has a list of urban gardening related events in each partner country, and it also provides an easy way to get in contact with other urban gardeners, exchange tips and tricks and find local initiatives to meet up at.
