Live examples from Brazil and the Netherlands
Should answers to health risks and environmental problems in agriculture be sought in technological innovations? Or can solutions maybe be found in a more close cooperation with nature and ecological principles? The agroecological movement is growing worldwide. It is working on answers in agriculture based on closing cycles and functional biodiversity. What does agro-ecology have to offer for agriculture in the South and in The Netherlands? What choices do we need to make to give it a fair chance? And what does it mean for Wageningen University?
With Irene Cardoso, soil scientist at the University of Viçosa (Brazil) and vice-president of the Brazilian Agroecology Association and Organic farmer Tom Saat, owner urban farm Almere, winner of Ekoland Innovationprize 2012.
