The story of Agripolis started in 2016 when Pascal had the intuition that growing towers could be used to set large farms on the rooftops of cities. Years after the idea has proven good enouth to spread from Paris, then its suburb, and now in other parts of France. Foreign sites are expected in 2022.
From spring 2020 Agripolis has opened in Paris “Nature Urbaine”, Europe’s largest rooftop urban farm.
After studying agronomics, Pascal worked for consulting firms, first on organisation and strategy issues for many years, then for environmental and sustainability issues from 1998.
He is also he founder of the iNex-circular startup, a platform for circular economy between companies, and a co-founder of the „Café Philo“ non profit initiative.
