Hello dear,

Summer is almost here and we got an idea!

This cross-disciplinary course will explore various issues that are currently relevant to the sustainable agriculture. It is designed for students who would like to learn more about environment friendly issues in agriculture.

The first week of the Summer School intends to provide the theoretical knowledge and understanding of Lithuanian Agriculture system, challenges and opportunities in the local ecosystem. Students will get knowledge about successful entrepreneurship and high value-added agri-food sector in Lithuania. Do You know about things in green taxation? Don’t you know that yet? So, you will discuss about this during Summer’s School activities. Students will discuss animal diseases and health challenges which are constantly evolving so the participants will get to know about their impact on the global economy, human health and sustainable development.

The second week of course will introduce you to naturalistic planting inspired by nature, conservation of biodiversity. Students will practice on assessment of wastewater quality for irrigation in agriculture and will try to bake Lithuanian traditional bread. Practical and theoretical education, laboratory skills, trips to varies interesting places, open-air teamwork activities, orienteering games and city tour and etc. will be provided.

Hellooo August!
