The Agroecological Network of Greece (Agroecology Greece) started in early 2017 through the networking of agronomists, mainly researchers and trainers. It is an initiative for the promotion of agroecology as a science, practice and movement, in Greek. The Network is primarily focusing on agricultural sciences, extending to other scientific sectors, as well as to social & economic issues. It seeks to familiarize the Greek scientific and rural sector with the agroecological approach and to pursue the transition of food production systems to a truly sustainable state. It considers that the Greek rural territory hugely possesses such transition dynamics, due to favorable characteristics like small-scale ownership, Mediterranean pedoclimatic conditions, traditional agricultural knowledge and rich agricultural diversity, which can provide robust adaptation of agroecological principles and practices.
