fondation pour la defense de l'environnement

Agro Quartiers Autogérés (CH)

This organisation based in Geneva presented a counter-project on the Plaine de l’Aire, a large vegetable production area threatened with concreting, as the Jardin des Charrotons – local organic cooperative (similar to AMAP) – was abolished in order to develop the industrial zone. 15,000 signatures were collected, which led to a referendum. Although this was not sufficient to avoid reclassification, it was a first step in this lengthy fight. Support was granted to cover poster printing expenses.
