We seek to amplify agroecology by connecting its three dimensions: practice, science and movement. This means we create spaces where farmers, urban citizens, academics, activists and policy makers share perspectives. We promote agroecology as a food system that is based on a dialogue of different types of knowledge and firmly rooted in family farming. We engage in debates and discussions, organise field visits, connect students with farmers, and are one of the founding members of the Dutch-Belgian Voedsel Anders (Food Otherwise) network.
