Agroecology has emerged as an alternative and holistic approach to systems thinking in education, applying phenomenology and practical experience along with science as valuable foundations for learning. Working with farmers and food system professionals, student teams use open-ended case studies to pursue education for responsible action. Agroecology explores production, economic, environmental, and social dimensions of food systems, with innovative programs in Norway, U.S. Midwest, Sweden, Uganda, Ethiopia, and India, as well as many countries in Latin America.
