The "Farmers Ecology" program works on the collection, transmission and promotion of local knowledge related to agro-ecosystem management. "Ecologie Paysanne Europe - EPE” aims to strengthen and widen a network of exchange, bringing together interested stakeholders. The objective is to disseminate this kind of knowledge from the local to the European level and to illustrate the overall importance of knowledge for sustainable development locally and globally.
