THE NEW CURRICULA ON TRADITIONAL FARMING AND RESILIENT AND SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
25 November 2021
The new study plans on agriculture are the focus of the first international conference of the VALOR project
• The new curricula on traditional agriculture and resilient and sustainable agriculture have starred in the first international conference of the Erasmus Valor project.
• The 2nd international conference of the project will be held in Greece in February next year if the situation allows.
A total of 75 people attended the conference, which was held online in late November. After the presentation of the objectives, partner entities, and results of the project so far, the quality guide developed for old agricultural techniques in resilient and sustainable agriculture was presented with an overview of the examples of good practices of the eight partner countries of the project.
The results of the various study visits carried out between June and October of this year, carried out in Italy, Greece, Romania, Spain, and Germany, were presented. These visits were also made in virtual format.
In the section of the new curricula for technicians and managers at the European level, the learning modules of the courses were presented. These have focused on traditional farming, biosecurity levels, safeguarding cultural and natural heritage, early detection of issues, communication skills, socio-economic benefits, and social and international entrepreneurship.
Two European organizations linked to agricultural and forestry training were announced, which will be key to the dissemination of these new curricula: EduForest and Europea Internacional, and a new European project related to agriculture with which it will be possible to establish synergies from the Value project.
This month, TERRATECH is organizing a conference in which the VALOR project will be presented.
