Best Summer Courses in Life Sciences 2019/2020. About

European rural areas are populated with small farms. They contribute to the production of food that is, later on, self-consumed or acquired by consumers in both rural and (peri)urban areas. For the mere fact that they operate in rural areas, small farms are part of rural dynamics (e.g. economic, social, environmental) that influence rural transition. In other words, in Europe rural transition goes along to issues related to agriculture and food production and consumption, many rural areas and businesses operating there contributing to food provisioning and acquisition.

The Summer School explores if and how small farms impact on sustainable rural transition while contributing to food provisioning and acquisition. In particular, the programme walks students along the investigation of four themes. These themes fall into the four above mentioned factors influencing the sustainability of rural transition and keep a focus on small farming. The themes can be synthesized as it follows:1. Small farms, sustainable tourism, and territorial valorization. This theme explores how small farms contribute to creating opportunities for a sustainable, experiential and multi-seasonal quality tourism sector. This theme includes analysis of rural tourism supply systems with particular reference to local production and agro-food supply chains and other traditional local products; multi-functionality and diversification of agriculture, agro-tourism, social agriculture, analysis of short supply chains2. Small farms and political agenda. This theme focusses on if, and which, policy acts support directly (e.g. subsidies) or indirectly (e.g. by mentioning small farming as part... [-]
