Vision & mission
The AgriCultures Network envisages a world where sustainable family farming is widely recognised as a key foundation for resilient rural livelihoods, food sovereignty and security, environmental and social justice.
Small-scale family farmers - women and men - produce adequate supplies of food and commodities for themselves and for local, regional and global markets. Doing so, they contribute to finding solutions for global challenges: climate change, hunger and environmental degradation.
Our mission is to facilitate practice-based knowledge sharing on sustainable family farming so that it becomes the mainstream agricultural practice world wide.
Connecting different stakeholders and different types of knowledge, the Network empowers farmers, contributes to society-wide learning and to upscaling and replication of sustainable farming practices and approaches. Members of the network actively exchange experiences and know-how on policy, institutions, markets, human, social and cultural capital, science and technology, and natural resources and climate.
