The participants will get to know the newest trends and technologies in practice. They will visit farms and agricultural companies, where participants will have  opportunity to discuss the issues of introducing and using of new technologies with farmers and managers, as well as taking about experiences or barriers.

Each team from the hosting country will prepare a presentation about the country, school and situation in agricultural enterprising and will be obliged to present it. Students will take photos and videos from workshops and excursions. Teachers will have the opportunity to compare agricultural education and conditions for practical training there. They will discuss and share experience with situation in their schools, as for the curricula, machinery, evaluation and collaboration with social partners.

We are happy to announce that the first workshop was held from 21 to 25 of October, 2019 at Easton & Otley College, Norwich, UK. 9 students from Sweden with 3 teachers, 10 students from Czech Republic with 4 teachers, 5 students from Denmark with 1 teacher and 4 students with 4 teachers from the UK got together.
