Fostering Food citizenship through Farm-School Cooperation? Theoretical perspectives and case studies on farm-school cooperation and food and agriculture education

    Research output: Book/Report/clinical guidelinesBookResearch


    Farm visits and closer collaboration between farmers and teachers through the school can enable children to get a direct understanding and potential interest in how their food is produced, the nature of agriculture and a relationship with a farmer as an authentic teacher and expert. In my study, I investigated various farm-school cooperation models and the motivation, learning goals and values among farmers and teachers working together to promote children's understanding of food, nature, agriculture and sustainability. The study is based on four case studies and a review of Danish educational materials related to food, agriculture and sustainability as well as international research in this field
