Sustainability Transitions Summer School: Integrated agro-forestry systems

The unique opportunity to learn more about transitions towards sustainable management of natural resources. Extended deadline for applications: 20 May 2017

Land degradation and climate change threaten food systems. Not all agricultural practices are ecologically sensitive, and trade is not always fair. This Summer School asks how to make the shift to sustainable and resilient agro-forestry systems in Indonesia.

Join us now and be part of a real-life educational opportunity on sustainability transitions. You will work in interdisciplinary teams with European and Asian participants, farmers, and stakeholders around Yogyakarta to explore opportunities of sustainable land use. We have 8 slots open for selected students from BOKU, GCUA-member universities and Austrian universities.

The summer school is part of the Food Security & Climate Change initiative co-funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union.

1. Students have to cover their own international travel to<>from Indonesia (Yogyakarta)
