R-Urban is a bottom-up strategy that explores how we enhance our capacity for urban resilience by introducing a network of user-run facilities. R-Urban provides tools and resources to facilitate citizen involvement in this project and initiates locally closed ecological cycles that will support the emergence of alternative models of living, producing and consuming. R-urban is supported by the EU Life+ Programme of environmental governance. The project partners are AAA, Paris, the City of Colombes and public works, London. www.r-urban.net
R-Urban-Wick was iniated in 2012 by public works (http://r-urban-wick.net ). The project consist of a diverse series of events, hands on workshops, talks and exhibitions hosted in many different sites and venues across the area and currently exists alongside the Mobile Garden City in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. R-urban Wick has been established as a community-led build project and houses innovative prototypes that test closed loop ecologies and economies such as a small scale waste to energy unit (Anaerobic Digester) along side the growing garden and closed loop kitchen, DIY Re-use/tool borrowing library, workshop space for local ‘makers’ and water collection with natural filtration.
