Farming in collaboration with nature
Sustainable food production can only be based on symbiotic relationships between humans and the diversity of organisms maintaining the ecosystem functioning. The objective of our team is to provide multidisciplinary understanding on such relationships on farmland and their implications for sustainable agronomy, social wellbeing, economy and policy, in Finland and beyond. Being an applied research group we aim to generate recommendations for land management, consumption and policy making.
The initiative of the European Commission Birds@farmland will bring together agricultural and environmental authorities, farmer organisations, NGOs and experts through workshops and interviews at national and EU levels in the co-creation or improvement of conservation schemes. The first national workshop will be held on 27.4. For more information, contact Irina Herzon
