The European Commission has set a target of at least 25% of Europe’s agricultural land being managed organically by 2030. Currently, we are only at 8.5% across Europe (Organic Action Plan, European Commission. 2021).
With Organic Farming for Future we want to contribute to achieving this goal – from practice for practice. OFAFFU combines two essential areas that will transform Europe on its way to sustainability: Education and Agriculture.
Particularly taking into account the European Reference Framework for Sustainability – GreenComp – we will develop innovative educational concepts in vocational education and training for future and already active farmers. Here, green skills meet entrepreneurial thinking, so that the profession of farmer can once again become a viable profession with quality of life.
In addition, we will invite decision-makers, experts from the fields of education and agriculture and farmers in Austria and Spain to participate in expert roundtables to explore the question “What is needed at the institutional, political and systemic level to ensure that 25% of agricultural land in Europe is used organically by 2030?”
We will summarise the results of the survey and the expert panels in a short report and use them as a basis for the development of a tailor-made educational offer.
OFAFFU is a project co-financed by the European Union within the framework of Erasmus+.
