Climate needs farmers
Farming as a source of basic foods constitutes essential sector of economy, but its impact on the environment and nature is equally important.
Farming is one of main reasons for climate change, it is also the one that suffers from climate change most and at the same time it is one of the greatest tools to mitigate the change.
During two years, project partners are going to meet, exchange experience on different farming methods and systems used in their countries, and work on creating indispensable and necessary educational tools for agricultural schools which will respond to the challenge that farming of XXI century is facing.
Apart from the cooperation network, the project result will be a basic guide concerning climate change and farming, promotional leaflet concerning the idea of the project, data base of organic agricultural schools in Europe, dictionary (English + partners’ languages) of technical terms connected with the project.
