A 5-week practical course designed to provide the knowledge and practical skills on regenerative and organic farming techniques in the context of the three dimensions of sustainability– environment, society and economy, with culture as an underlying dimension.

The course draws on the experience developed in a network of some of the most successful ecovillages and transition settings across the Earth and in the context of the booming Sicilian organic agriculture.

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) approaches will support migrants and unemployed youth to reflect and act on viable alternatives towards food security while promoting good food and healthy diets, strengthening local economies and sustaining small enterprises and the viability of small farms.

It is expected that the combined tools of an interactive curriculum and a series of pilot activities will support a pathway for migrants and unemployed youth to develop new skills, improve their social status, create sustainable communities and enter the organic agriculture regional and European job market.
