VALOR: VALORISATION OF ANCIENT FARMING TECHNIQUES IN RESILIENT AND SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE is founded by European Commission under the Erasmus+ Knowledge Alliances programme ( 2019-2022)

The increasing loss of agricultural genetic diversity has stimulated the initiative of VALOR Alliance to safeguard ancient cereal, horticultural and legume varieties. Totally 135 farmers joined a pilot network, committed themselves to safeguarding the varieties at risk of extinction and have been awarded the role of Park ‘guardian farmers’. The VALOR Alliance will jointly design curricula, an education program and common modules – including e-modules – between Alliance members from different countries, disciplines and economic sectors (public/private), and will ensure the relevance towards the needs of the labour market considered of resilient and sustainable farming, demonstratively applied in protected areas of the Parks allied within VALOR,- representing a broad segment of the target market of VALOR. 

While working remotely, XCAPE project partners continued to work intensively to develop the intellectual outputs at the proposed deadlines.

At GREEN S.E.E.D.S. distance teaching and learning is not a consequence of the global health emergency. It is the very heart of the project, instead, which was conceived and started well before the Covid-19.

The actors of GREEN S.E.E.D.S. are in fact the small decentralized schools, which have always thought of distance learning as a resource.

For this reason, GREEN S.E.E.D.S. project provides teachers with theory and tools to study, compare and put into practice paths of interaction and collaboration between pupils of isolated schools from different countries.
