Is there something distinctive about an agroecological approach to training and learning? How is learning a part of the struggle for food sovereignty, or other social movements for social justice and sustainability? What examples are there of this in Europe?

An open access (free to download) article written by researchers at the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience that addresses these questions has just been published:
