CIVEBA SEMINAR - ALTERNATIVE BIOINPUTS AND PHYTOSANITARIES
20/7/2018 al 1/11/2018
Between July and November 2018, the Foro del Sur Foundation invited to the second meeting of a seminar whose purpose was to debate about bioinputs and alternative phytosanitary products.
The CIVEBA (Green Belt of Buenos Aires) forum sought to debate the agenda linked to the Green Belt of Buenos Aires. It entails the need for multiple and diverse perspectives and includes the social and economic issue from environment to gender and migration, from investment and technology to consumption and health. A modern city has a duty to reflect on these issues and that is why a series of meetings were organized.
The changes produced in the relationship between urban and rural are multiple: urban margins increasingly diffuse; use of green spaces for permanent housing purposes; domestic technological presence in rural areas that facilitates the connection with the rest of the world through satellites and cellular telephony; purely rural jobs near towns; filing of agroeconomic ventures on the margins of the urban fabric. All of them are facts that demonstrate the changes produced between urban and rural. Precisely, these variations reveal the emergence of a hybrid zone composed of factors coming from both the city and the countryside, which is defined when a new stadium is founded in which actors, situations and expressions that link worlds that in principle meet are found disconnected from each other. Thus, the urban world and the rural world interpose, influence and tense in a relationship in which social, political, institutional and economic actors are present. This hybridization is known as rurbanity: interpenetration process between the urban world and the rural world, whereby multiple forms are produced that constitute a new area characterized by the inclusion of components from dissimilar spaces, but in which, however, practices and knowledge-sharing can take place that affect both areas and actors in it.
This second meeting of the CIVEBA Seminar had the presence of Dr. Rapela, President of the Argentine Chamber of Bioinsumos CABIO, as well as Eng. Gonzalo Sánchez Correa of SEMCO.
