L'agriculture urbaine dans les quartiers défavorisés de Malmö : un outil de recomposition des relations homme-nature

Abstract : using both environmental care and food justice as theoritical frames, this paper proposes to study the society-nature relation through urban agriculture areas, within the Swedish context of a model for access and proximity to nature, which is challenged by issues of social inclusion. Two main issues are raised from the case study of Malmö. First, do initiatives of urban farming promote the development of a behaviour of environmental care, through a reconnexion between inhabitants and nature ? Thus, can it enable to reduce inequality of access to nature and food, and can it be a tool of social inclusion for participants ? Our study is based on a focus on 2 community gardens and on urban commercial farming. Community gardening in disadvantaged areas does appear as an act of environmental care, but it largely fails to improve the situation of food justice, because people initially targeted by those initiatives (mostly immigrants) are not involved, and because of a lack of local political support. Nevertheless, urban farming appears as a tool to educate and to raise awareness about food and nature, mostly based on practice. We suppose that it is a first step towards a situation of food justice.
