6th Belgian Agroecology Meeting – 2017

On 14th of November 2017, the sixth Belgian Agroecology Meeting (BAM) will be co-organised in Gembloux (Espace Senghor) by the University of Liège (Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech and Arlon Campus Environment), the Walloon Agricultural Research Centre (CRA-W), the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and the GIRAF group.

As a source of enrichment and resilience, diversity is a red wire of agroecology, even a key-concept.

This sixth BAM session wishes to highlight the great role that diversity plays all along the conception and application of agroecology. From the structuring of sustainable agroecosystems to the sharing of knowledge between involved parties, the BAM invite researchers, land managers and stakeholders to share about their on-going experiences, innovations, successes and failures.

Four topics structure the conference :

  1. Species association and biodiversity linked to agroecology and/or agroforestry
  2. Food systems
  3. Teaching agroecology – Workshop
  4. (How) can the Ecosystem Services framework foster agroecological transitions – Workshop
