Our CSA Booster multilingual "Future of Farming: Exploring Climate Smart Agriculture" MOOC starts 24 September in English, German, French and Chinese!
The free online course was developed by the UK's University of Reading with support from EIT Climate-KIC Online Education to scale the international agriculture sector's response to climate change. It is funded by EIT Climate-KIC's CSA Booster flagship. The English-only version running on Future Learn has already attracted over 5,000 participants since launching early last year!
After introducing the concept of climate smart agriculture (CSA) in week one, the course takes an in-depth look at practical climate mitigation and adaptation opportunities in EU dairy production and in EU wine production.
Pan Pan, Head of EIT Climate-KIC’s Flagship Programme CSA Booster and Deputy Director of the Sustainable Land Use theme, said: "As more and more people are educating themselves about the environment, we wanted to share our networked expertise and make our popular 'Future of Farming' course more accessible to today's growing generation of multilingual online learners. Today's students are tomorrow's leaders."
Dr Matthieu Arnoult, University of Reading, says: “[The course] is specifically designed to be accessible to anyone who wants to learn more about modern food production, farming and environmental challenges.”
The MOOC is FREE no matter which language participants choose to study in and is structured in flexible hours over three weeks from 24 September 2018.
