The sustainable management of the water resources in Malta is imperative for ensuring the health of the population and for the future development of the island. The country records the lowest volume of water resources among the EU Member States and, at the same time, the highest average cubic meters of water used per hectare on irrigated land.
The 2nd Summer School of FowariM – H2020 project funded by the European Union – will address this topic for a week, from 2 to 6 July 2018, at the MCAST Institute in Paola, Malta. The School aims to demonstrate in a practical way the importance of technological innovation in agriculture towards the achievement of process of circular economy, in order to sustain the value of materials and resources and minimize the generation of waste.
Through the intervention of lecturers from 6 European countries (Belgium, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Spain and United Kingdom), the Summer School will foster a participatory and practical approach promoting interactions between students, farmers, and policy makers. Two open-field visits are scheduled: to show how a farm is run through circular economy and to exchange views with authorities in the water sector.
To dynamic the training, a session will be dedicated to the creation of a business model with the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY methodology, an innovative tool designed to foster creativity and business performance through play. Moreover, participants will be able to network with colleagues from different universities and exchange experiences with experts (farmers, professionals and researchers).
