Agriculture & Sustainability Program

China’s agricultural industry employs hundreds of millions of people. Home to one fifth of the world’s population, but less than 10% of its arable land, this sector faces huge challenges. Don’t miss this opportunity to see for yourself how this industry is transforming and developing in the far east’s unique environment.

This program offers you the chance to travel to two of China’s major metropolises, Shanghai and Beijing, where you’ll visit companies and meet game changers in both agriculture hotspots. Modernization, sustainability and agriculture form a special combination in China to transform how the Chinese produce food and spread awareness of pollution and waste. Organic and biological food production, strict waste separation policies and zero-waste lifestyles are only a few examples.

 

During the Agriculture and Sustainability Program, you’ll visit the local companies and professionals who play a part in these developments. Both Shanghai and Beijing have huge populations, but very different natural environments. Visiting both cities will provide you with a wider perspective on the scale of the challenges faced, and why certain solutions suit certain places.

 

Besides learning about trends and developments in agriculture and sustainability, you’ll get to really see how the industry operates and develops and put this new knowledge to good use in an independent project.
