the different actors
Agroecology is a topical subject with vague contours, sometimes controversial, and highly publicized in the media. Questioning the meaning of the terms used and providing clear and synthetic definitions validated by research is a major challenge in supporting the transition of production systems to agroecology. More than a simple dictionary, the dictionary of agroecology aims to promote exchanges between the different actors of agroecology through various actions and discussion forums. Scientists, students, teachers, agricultural actors and citizens: you are all invited to contribute!
The dictionary of agroecology is an evolving and interactive tool designed to inform and raise awareness of the challenges of agroecology among a wide audience. Everyone can participate in its enrichment by commenting on the definitions or by suggesting other terms to be defined.
The terms defined in the dictionary are at the heart of current societal issues. Beyond the actors of the agricultural world, any person who is concerned about the quality of his food and his health can find sourced information. “Permaculture”, “biocontrol”, “resilience”, “sobriety”, “one health”, …: understanding these terms is also a way to understand how agroecology can provide concrete solutions to the double global food and environmental crisis.
