Oecumene Spaces For Dignity, commonly recognized as Oecumene Studio, is spearheading a transformative project that seeks to rejuvenate unoccupied, abandoned, and transitional public areas into thriving urban gardens cultivating edible fruits and vegetables. Beyond merely beautifying urban landscapes, this urban greening initiative aims to address multifaceted urban challenges, notably by converting urban waste into fruitful resources. Envisioned as communal hubs, these revitalized spaces will serve as platforms to enlighten and mold future generations. Urban agriculture is championed as a holistic solution under this project, serving as an educational tool for sustainable food production, fostering local economic growth, and bridging societal, political, and economic divides. The strategic pillars underpinning this initiative are: 1. Support, 2. Plan, 3. Design, 4. Realize, 5. Measure, 6. Promote, 7. Study, 8. Train, 9. Mobilize, and 10. Connect.
