Marion Nestle : Where from here?
Dear friends and colleagues –
We are excited to announce the 18th Annual International Agroecology Shortcourse!
This year’s course, “Pathways to Resilience: an agroecological approach”, will be held in Burlington, VT, USA from July 31- August 10, 2017. Agroecology offers crucial tools for farmers, advocates and planners to transform food systems for sustainability and resilience. This year’s shortcourse seeks to deepen participants’ understanding of agroecology’s dimensions as a science, practice and movement. By drawing on the experiences of participants from all over the world, this course will introduce key principles of agroecology and examine pathways to more resilient agrifood systems at a local, regional, and international scale.
Classes and field activities will be held at the University of Vermont, situated in the heart of the Champlain Valley offering participants a unique opportunity to experience Vermont’s vibrant, local food and agriculture systems. The Agroecology and Livelihoods Collaborative (ALC) at the University of Vermont, in partnership with the Community Agroecology Network (CAN), are excited to announce the 18th Annual International Agroecology Shortcourse. The course will be led by three generations of agroecologists that represent multiple areas of expertise, including Stephen R. Gliessman, V. Ernesto Méndez, and Roseann Cohen.
