Wageningen World: Sustainable farmers light the way

Together, model farmers from various parts of the world form an online school for sustainable farming systems. Others can explore their approach through distance learning methods including a hologram.

Rogier Schulte, professor of Farming Systems Ecology in Wageningen describes the network as a ‘global classroom or laboratory for sustainable farming systems’. The project includes existing farms on different continents that have developed a sustainable and cost-effective farming system by adopting a radical approach. Farmers all around the world can be inspired to apply the innovations on their own farms, or to develop their own variations on them.
