About the programme

Many actors who have a part in this increasingly urgent issue agree that we need to change how we deal with nature, our landscape and our resources. And it is becoming ever clearer that agriculture has an important part to play in this regard. In this programme, we present the various views and positions. We work with parties in the field to find sustainable solutions that combine nature conservation and protection with economically viable agriculture.

The central challenge is bringing agricultural entrepreneurs and ‘the environment’ closer together. The puzzle is a challenging one: both sides have difficult goals to achieve. You will tackle practical issues hands-on in an interdisciplinary project team.

Learning goals

After completing this programme:

  • You have deepened your professional knowledge on the relationship between agriculture and nature.
  • You can apply this knowledge to complex practical issues in a region.
  • You are able to shape sustainable solutions to practical problems – both at the area level and at the entrepreneurial level – with a focus on nature, society and the economy.

Admission requirements

Next to a HBO popedeuse and second year, we do expect you to:

  1. be able to contribute relevant knowledge from your study program;
  2. be eager to learn and keep an open mind to different perspectives;
  3. 3) proactively contribute to collaboration with students, entrepreneurs and area partners from the professional field.
