UNIVERSIDADES DE LA TIERRA (Universities of the Land), the Agroecology and Food Sovereignty Formation Network is a project based in Spain that started in 2014 with the aim of connecting different institutions that offer programmes on Agroecology, Food Sovereignty and related topics. It takes the form of a platform that puts in contact people and organisations from the whole country, and it aims to generate debates and synergies amongst those who have as an objective the paradigm of Food Sovereignty and the fight for a better world.
For the moment, the platform’s main project is the creation and development of the website universidadesdelatierra.org, where we update on a regular basis information about different formations and the organisations that offer them. We index the programmes and share them through the social networks (facebook y twitter), hoping to contribute to the visibility of those kinds of formations. We also aim at becoming a point of reference for those who search for learning spaces on these topics.
UNIVERSIDADES DE LA TIERRA is formed by the formative institutions themselves and other organisations that provide support in coordination and diffusion tasks. The platform is open to new organisations if they share the educative philosophy of the project and act according to our educational criteria.
