5Bridges Expert Journal: Desiging the social restaurant and the urban farm
In his 2nd journal of 5Bridges, UIA expert Freek Spinnewijn looks into how the project has left behind a difficult period and entered one with more optimism at full speed in what regards implementation!In Freek’s words, the time is now mature to allow project leaders to make the software (social and community activities) and the hard ware (the building of the infrastructure) of the project to coincide and interact better.

In his journal, you will read about the key features of the project in the form of the social restaurant and the urban farm that are now taking concrete shape on the drawing table  and you will get to know about the impressive participatory nature of the project!
The journal also takes a deep dive on the challenges that the project implementation has come across in the last six months and how these have been tackled before concluding with the main takeaways, useful for all cities!
