School Agroecology as a motor for community and land transformations: The collaboration between local administration and university to promote ES school networks
This is the case of an ongoing municipality-university partnership fostering a school community collaboration project through the School Agenda 21 Program. This is a 5 year long collaboration around the development of an alternative agricultural practice, urban agroecology, and its educational counterpart, school agroecology, in which schools have a central role and where all stakeholders are involved in innovation through action research. The purposes of the collaboration, the processes, the tools, the constraints and the obstacles will be presented by taking a multistakeholder perspective though the use of social drama techniques.
