“Agroecology is a paradigm and perception shift”
From 25 to 27 October 2017, Lyon, France, the first Forum of the Agroecology Europe Association, was hosted by ISARA.
It has been a time of gathering, sharing and discussing among the actors who animate the agroecology movement to build a common understanding for the future of food and agriculture in Europe and in the world.
The Agroecological Network of Greece (Agroecology Greece) started in early 2017 through the networking of agronomists, mainly researchers and trainers. It is an initiative for the promotion of agroecology as a science, practice and movement, in Greek.

Agroecology has become a territory in dispute.
While mainstream institutions and corporations for years have marginalized and ridiculed agroecology, today they are trying to capture it.
FAO has launched a new online Agroecology Knowledge Hub at: http://www.fao.org/agroecology/en/. The website is aimed at maintaining and promoting information and updates on Agroecology, as well as providing a space to share experiences of FAO and our partners in Agroecology. Ultimately, the goal is to strengthen our worldwide network.

Field trip objectives
This trip is an ideal moment to mix people from different backgrounds: farmers and their supports already engaged in agroecology, farmers in transition towards agroecology, and various categories of individuals in charge of rural development.
