Educating the next generation of professionals in the agrifood system

Enhancing the co-creation of innovation and knowledge in agriculture, forestry and related bio-value chains.

Developing an innovative European science and education roadmap for sustainable agriculture.

Inducing a paradigm shift from a linear to a cyclical approach of learning.

Toolbox for teaching practitioners

The aim of the Nextfood Toolbox is to support teaching practitioners in implementing action-based education. The Nextfood approach is a response to the need for education that enables us to deal with complex sustainability challenges. In this approach, a main focus is to train and develop the competences of observation, dialogue, reflection, participation, visionary thinking and facilitation through action learning in agrifood- and forestry systems.
