GAEA is aiming to improve the full employability ecosystem in the field of agriculture and food systems to better assimilate the graduates’ expectations and results on building up an accomplished professional trajectory.
Fruitful intergenerational handover. GAEA will facilitate the emergence of innovative actions conceived, managed and carried out by young scientists and professionals of its community. Federating settled and young specialists will ensure to achieve its goal of creating the next generation of experts in agriculture and food systems.
Genuine research based solutions. All agricultural systems and human cultures are inherently geographic in nature; inextricably rooted in their local ecology and history. For this reason, we forsake one-size-fits-all solutions and the continuous stream of fad approaches to sustainable development in favor of action based on empirical research, tailored to each unique context.
Stepping up the science/society dialogue. At GAEA we aim to inspire awareness and discussion among global citizens about the various challenges, issues, and innovative ideas from farmers, youth, agricultural professionals and rural communities are facing worldwide and to share concrete ways of creating more sustainable landscapes and food systems.
