    Boerengroep works together with chairgroups at the Wageningen University, like Rural Sociology Group (RSO) and Farming Systems Ecology (FSE), with organisations, like ILEIA, ASEED, Milieudefensie and Toekomstboeren, with foundations like St. Otherwise and RUW, with International research and advocacy institutes, like TNI, with international human rights organizations, like FIAN, and Educational Institutes like VHL and Warmonderhof. We work closely together with farmers unions, since we are part of platform Aarde Boer Consument (ABC, ‘Earth Farmer Consumer’). Moreover, we work together with students and PhDers of the Wageningen University, supporting and encouraging them to organize activities they find important to address. Are you organizing an event related to one of our topics and would you like to work together with us? Feel free to contact us for more info: st.boerengroep@wur.nl
