The review of institutional organization of the municipalities in metropolitan cities leads us to reflect on the new role that agriculture and its stakeholders have to play in the pursuit of sustainability of well-being. In this context, this paper aims to highlight new models of governance for agriculture in the future, more appropriate to the emergence of a new proximity market, but especially more embedded in a feedback system that it will be able to offer in terms of lifestyles, mobility, work, health, leisure, social relationships and milieu. More precisely, agriculture can find a proximity market, whether it will be able to ensure the replicability of the stock of social, human, natural and economic capital, to respond to new lifestyles and to maintain and protect the identity of the territory.
Keywords: Proximity market, sustainability of well-being, sustainable agriculture, metropolitan city, proximity agriculture
