Promote Online Education for Agriculture in a Sustainable Environment


Agriculture is often linked with rural areas and the countryside. Still, with almost three-quarters of the EU population living in cities and urban regions (EUROSTAT 2014), such a narrative is not only misleading but also overlooks remarkable initiatives which could contribute to addressing and mitigating overurbanization implications.

Urban organic and vertical farming encompasses a novel form of sustainable agriculture that urban residents can deploy to counteract the consequences of urban sprawl and at some level take ownership of their food production and consumption. Urban farming makes citizens contemplate the potential of their engagement over their own environment (private and public), empowers and brings communities together, and addresses and seeks solutions.

Objectives of the project

The following Objectives (O) are being addressed in the project:

O1: Reinforce the ability of ATVET providers to provide high-quality, inclusive digital education.
O2: Provide new upskilling OER for ATVET Teachers and Trainers.
O3: Building capacity for ATVET providers to implement online, blended and distance teaching and learning
O4: Develop high-quality digital content, promoting innovative methods and tools for e-teaching and e-learning for the members of the networks of the consortium and available for all
O5: Promote and deliver networking opportunities among ATVET providers O6: Development of tailor-made solutions adaptable at a Regional/Local level

Expected Main Results

R1: Better understanding of the actual needs of ATVET Teachers and Trainers (including the
institutions they are representing)
R2: Easier access to training modules for the upskilling of the digital skills and competencies of ATVET Teachers and Trainers.
R3: Better quality of learning content, complying with the design of 21 OER modules with DigiComp 2, the EU Framework for Digital Competences.
R4: Increase the learning experience for the ATVET learners, who are going to enjoy a better
e-learning environment and better training solutions/techniques that will help them to be
more competent in their professional life.
R5: Increase the accessibility to the OER through the large networking potentials emerging
from the collaboration of important stakeholders in the Agricultural and Environmental sectors.
