A capacity building process aimed at young activists aged between 20 and 30 who wish to deepen the relationships between food systems, cities and global warming. Through the comparison with experts, scientists, communicators and creatives, the group will develop the ability to make social communication and to dialogue with local institutions on environmental and food issues. The school adopts an experiential training approach (learning by doing) with peer to peer exchanges and workshops that will allow you to immediately apply the knowledge and skills acquired to concrete cases.
