Modern international practices in sustainable rural development.

General Admission Registrations period has ended.

The agri-food sector is an important driver of development at the regional and local level. How do local and regional food systems relate to the circular economy? What are the challenges for societies and the environment? What is the role of the state and what is the role of private initiative? Good examples both internationally and in our country present opportunities for learning and inspiration and harness the agri-food sector’s potential in further contributing to the sustainability of local communities.
