So where does our food come from? And what impact does this have on the planet? And how can we create more sustainable global food production?

This Eramus+ training course will see participants from 8 European countries (Ireland, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Romania, Greece, Portugal and Italy) come together to explore these questions, the importance of food and its relationship with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
