This short course will briefly present the problem with our current food production systems and the urgent need to find sustainable alternative ways to feed the growing human population. Circular agriculture is currently being promoted by the EU and FAO as one way out of the problem.
The seminar will explain the concept of Circular Agriculture and how and where it can be applied. The role of animal agriculture will be highlighted as well as that of aquaculture as possible links within the Circular Agriculture cycle. Finally, the advantages and limitations of this approach will be discussed. Knowing that a 2-hour lecture can summon the sleep fairy even for the most caffeinated audience, an interactive approach will be followed to convey the messages and make the time go by with a smile :) .
Undergraduate and graduate agriculture and environmental students, farmers: amateurs & professionals, sustainability enthusiasts, environmental activists.
