MS FSCC Summer School Oil Palm & Cattle Integration 2018

Join our Summer School and live Malaysia with us!

Do you want to know more about palm oil production and cattle integration as a potential sustainability transition? If the answer was yes then do not hesitate and register for unforgettable experince and  a little bit of Asian adventure.

 

A little story about the palm oil:

 

Palm oil is consumed everywhere and a key economic sector in South East Asia. At the same time, palm oil production has a particularly bad reputation regarding its ecological sustainability.

We have a more holistic understanding of sustainability – including social, economic and ecological dimensions. And we want to take a closer look – how sustainable are different types of oil palm plantations in Malaysia? Is the integration of cattle, as proposed by universities and authorities in Malaysia a powerful pathway to improve sustainability?

Join us now and be part of a real-life educational opportunity on sustainability transitions. You will work in interdisciplinary teams with European and Asian participants, farmers, and stakeholders in Malaysia to explore the sustainability of different palm oil production regimes. 

 

The summer school is part of the Food Security & Climate Change (MS FSCC)  initiative co-funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union.
