Co-production of green spaces in Medina - Urban farming

El-Houma Khir aims to make public spaces in Tunisia more inclusive. This initiative embraces placemaking through a series of workshops in the Medina of Tunis, collaborating with various local partners. These workshops allow the local community, especially the youth, to envision and design their spaces to be more inclusive. Participants will learn about the creation and transformation of cities through new uses while also addressing the real challenges faced by decision-makers and urban planners. El-Houma Khir is a co-production initiative and community effort dedicated to redefining common spaces and fostering community building in the contemporary world.
