Curriculum of Agroecology

We regularly organize agroecology training for local leaders.

Curriculum was created on the basis of the program and training methodology of the Schola Campesina organization. The first program of the 10-day training was conducted by Andrea Ferrante, a long-time activist of La Via Campesina, an experienced trainer, a farmer practicing in Italy and a consultant for political processes in agriculture at the United Nations (Food and Agriculture Organization, FAO).

Our program includes 9 thematic modules:

1. Training methodology and familiarizing of participants

2. Food sovereignty, agroecology and global agriculture and food management

3. Climate changes, agroecology methods and farm autonomy

4. Regional cooperation networks: agricultural and ecological organizations

5. Shared Resource Rights: Water, Land, Seeds

6. Planning cooperation for Agroecology: Polish Declaration of Agroecology

7. Education and knowledge transfer in agroecology: New Generation of Farmers / check

8. Social economy, food distribution networks and local markets

9. Agroecology and politics: strategies and mechanisms of influence
