Short-term target groups

The short-term target group,  will be similar to the long-term target group. This is because the target groups we aim to reach will be integrated into the development of the curriculum (bottom-up) in a participatory way.

The short-term target group will be actively involved in the project and will implement the curriculum at a later date. This group consists of:

  • professionals and trainers from farmers’ associations (advisors etc.)
  • trainers and teachers from vocational schools, universities of applied science, and universities of cooperative education, all active in the agricultural, social, justice, health, education and regional development sectors
  • professionals active in SF and Multifunctional Agriculture networks, linking ongoing activities
  • users/learners: professionals and students from the agricultural, social, justice, health and education sectors, social workers in welfare organisations, workers in social institutions and public social institutions, social workers in prisons, farmers, nursing staff in hospitals and nursing homes, students at universities and vocational schools, entrepreneurs, regional manager
