Designing sustainable landscapes within regional food systems6 July 2021
SUMMER COURSE in Groningen
Learn all about designing sustainable regional food systems and agroecological landscapes for the North of The Netherlands! A redesign of the agricultural systems and resulting landscapes is urgently needed. The north of The Netherlands is a region that has the potential to become an example and lead the way towards sustainable food production, playing a key role at national and international levels.
In this summer school, you will focus on the North of the Netherlands as a case study region. You will visit farms, go to landscape lectures and conduct interviews with various stakeholders (farmer organisations, advisors, food industry, retailers, local government, academia, etc.). This will be supplemented with background literature and lectures by specialists from various disciplines (agriculture, ecology, geography, economics, nutrition, political and social sciences) to provide you with all the necessary elements to design sustainable regional food systems and agroecological landscapes for the North of The Netherlands.
