UVM Faculty Guest Edit New Special Issue on Agroecology and Agri-food Systems

Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems has just published a special issue “Agroecology and the Transformation of Agri-Food Systems: Transdisciplinary and Participatory Perspectives,” now available for download online.

This special issue is devoted to defining the focus of agroecology, and pointing out ways that it must lead the way in transforming food systems to sustainability, from the seed and the soil, all the way to the table.

Guest editors V. Ernesto Méndez, Christopher Bacon, and Rose Cohen at the University of Vermont bring together the transdisciplinary perspectives that have helped form our understanding of agroecology, how it promotes change through participatory action in research and education, and why it is important that agroecology lead the way in bringing sustainability to all people and all parts of our global food system.

This is the inaugural issue of Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (formerly Journal of Sustainable Agriculture), and it brings together agroecologists from around the world, who are interested in transdisciplinary and participatory approaches.

We hope that you find some of the content of interest and encourage you to share it widely!
