The Summer School will include interactive workshop sessions exploring the key concepts of Global Education within the context of the Sustainable Development Goals, sessions with invited guest speakers on food security and food sovereignty, as well as visits to local farms or other sustainable agricultural projects. The summer school will also offer the space for participants to share their own experiences and learning, to develop new links between those active in global learning settings and those involved in sustainable agricultural projects, as well as provide sufficient space for participants to develop their own plans for future actions.

Main criteria:

  • young people between between 18 and 30;
  • involved in youth work and youth-related activities;
