Enriching summer school about the design of sustainable food systems

21 July 2021 By

During two weeks, the 19 students attending the summer school entitled “Design of sustainable food systems”, organised by the University of Tuscia with the support of SLU-Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences e BOKU-University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, have been immersed in an international environment, an experience that has been very interesting and enriching for them.

Participants have been Bachelor and Master’s students, who have had an opportunity to acquire an in-depth knowledge of theoretical and practical issues related to the sustainability of food systems. Major thematic topics reflect the four-pillar approach of the Farm-to-Fork EU strategy, thus combining sustainability of production, food processing and distribution, sustainable consumption styles and prevention of food waste.
