On February 6th the Environmental Sciences Department of Central European University and Sustainable CEU, the University’s sustainability activism group, were very happy to host three trAEce project team members as part of their Managing Diversity in Agroecological and Permaculture Systems discussion series. The invited guests Zoltan Dezsény, Alfréd Szilágyi, and Apolka Ujj provided insights on diversity at all stages of the agroecology food chain and across scales. Students and community members in attendance were also introduced to the trAEce project and it aims, and also given advice on how student researchers can develop research projects which support the greater agroecology movement in Central Europe. Many of the students in attendance are enrolled in the University’s Introduction to Agroecology and Organic Gardening Systems course.
The organizers extend a thank you to all panel guests and all community members who attended.
