“Design of sustainable food systems” Summer School
5 July 2021 - 16 July 2021
Three LOWINFOOD partners, the University of Tuscia (Italy), the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (Sweden) and the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (Austria) have organised a summer school on “Design of sustainable food systems”. It arises from the growing attention that the issue of sustainability of food systems is gaining at the international level.
These three institutions have come together to provide Bachelor and Master’s students with 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.
The summer school will be held at the UNITUS Alpine Studies Centre, located in the small village of Pieve Tesino, in the mountains of Trentino, Italy, during the first two weeks of July 2021.
They already have 19 confirmed international participants (selected among 35 applicants), who come from 4 different EU countries (Italy, Austria, Germany and Denmark) and they represent 9 different nationalities.
