The Agroecology and Livelihoods Collaborative (ALC)* at the University of Vermont (UVM), in partnership with the Community Agroecology Network (CAN), announce the 2017 International Agroecology Shortcourse. The course theme is: Pathways to Resilience: An Agroecological Approach. This year’s shortcourse will be held at the University of Vermont in Burlington. The dates are July 31-August 10, 2017.

Agroecology offers crucial tools for farmers, advocates, and planners to transform food systems for sustainability and resilience. This year’s shortcourse will focus on agroecology as a science, practice, and movement. By drawing on the experiences of participants from all over the world, this course will examine pathways to more resilient agrifood systems at a local, regional, and international scale.

Classes and field activities will be held at UVM, situated in the heart of the Champlain Valley, offering the unique opportunity to experience Vermont’s vibrant, local food and agriculture systems.
