Summer School 2018 Oil palm & cattle integration in Malaysia
Palm oil is consumed everywhere and a key economic sector in South East Asia. At the same time, palm oil production has a particularly bad reputation regarding its ecological sustainability. Take a closer look - how sustainable are different types of oil palm plantations in Malaysia? Is the integration of cattle, as proposed by universities and authorities in Malaysia a powerful pathway to improve sustainability?
Be part of a real-life educational opportunity on sustainability transitions, work in interdisciplinary teams with European and Asian participants, farmers, and stakeholders in Malaysia to explore the sustainability of different palm oil production regimes.
There are 8 slots open for selected students of all study programs at BOKU, GCUA-member universities, Agrinatura and Austrian universities. The summer school is part of the Food Security & Climate Change initiative co-funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union.
