Kategorie: News

The course “Strategy, Supply Chain Management, and Sustainability in Agribusiness and the Food Industry” held at the Chair of Economics of Horticulture and Landscaping participated in the "Public Climate School" week. The “flipped classroom” teaching method used in this module offers students the opportunity to prepare for the class by means of case studies and to shape the teaching lessons themselves. During the "Public Climate School" week the case analyzed a sustainable system of cooperative tea production in Kenya. Since Kenya is affected strongly by climate change, strategies to ensure the preservation of small farms and income security in the face of these challenges were discussed. Students also analyzed other disadvantaged regions in the world and researched several projects that support agriculture’s adaptation to climate change.
