Abstract

This work aimed to study the circuits of proximity, that can be established between urban consumers in the municipality of Viseu, and producers of animal and vegetable origin, inhabiting the rural areas of the city. This study also aims to contribute to the opening of a space for debate, where ideas and projects that aim to promote the revitalization of these circuits of proximity can be released and discussed, in the context of wealth creation and its more equal distribution, and in the context of preserving the countryside and the rural life of our county. For this, it was elected a qualitative method of analysis of the information gathered through different interviews with farmers and urban customers. These players were chosen in a random manner, respecting only some parameters for its selection. It was demonstrated with this study that it is possible to strengthen relations between urban and rural areas of the municipality of Viseu, identifying gains that this relationship can bring to both parties. This value creation goes beyond the purely economic aspect, which by no means ceases to be decisive, promoting also the creation and strengthening of social ties between the two communities.
