In 2020 we will look back upon these times and tell each other how we saved the world by transitioning to agroecology, worldwide. This is what john Ambler said in 2011 (then Vice-President for Strategy, Oxfam America).
Therefore welcome to this site were you can learn all you want to know about Agroecology and how you can support the transition to sustainable food systems. In my book you can read how you can contribute to an acceleration of this transiton; not only in Europe and the States, also in Developing countries.
The book Transition to AgroEcology, for a food secure world was published early October 2016. It is available on authorhouse.com/books and amazon. com as paperback and hardcover, and will shorlty be available as e-book as well.
