The European Government has launched a new European project, Organic.Edunet, which aims to raise awareness about Organic Argriculture and Agro-Ecology in schools and agricultural universities.
The project is coordinated by the Greek Research and Technology Network (GRNET S.A.), which also involves 15 partners from 10 European countries. The project will facilitate the access, usage and exploitation of digital educational content for teaching topics related to Organic Agriculture and Agro-Ecology. The government will also set up a network online repositories with educational resources from various content producers. These online repositories will be accessible from the Organic.Edunet Web portal, a multilingual environment that will facilitate end-users' search, retrieval, access and use of the educational resources. Organic.Edunet is also planning to study all educational scenarios, which will use digital content to support teaching concepts related to Organic Agriculture and Agro-Ecology in schools and agricultural universities. The project is expected to be completed by 2010. The project is aiming to inform about the benefits of Organic Agriculture and Agro-Ecology to European youth, so that they can develop a sustainable and ecological way of living and working among future consumers and young agricultural experts.
