functional_green took place during the Vienna Design Week from 30th of September till the 9th of October 2011.
The project is presented by collective stadtpark (www.stadtpark.org) and puts its focus to the very different aspects of urban gardening. Can people identify themselves and take responsibility for something they don't own – I mean the city? Is there a base for urban farming to redefine regional food production and thus can it contribute to environmental protection? Can the specialist knowledge of migrants coming from rural areas help and provide to better social integration and acceptance?...
