EUROPEA Spirit during 5th AGRO CHALLENGE in Austria
Sep 02nd 2022

A memorable event

The 5th Agro Challenge took successfully place in Litzlhof, Austria from 22-26 August 2022. Students from 18 national EUROPEA associations showed their knowledge, technical skills and social competences. During the international dinner countries presented some national dishes and all participants could taste these national specialities!

Continuous learning in green schools

EUROPEA Austria offered also workshops, in which participants could learn about SmaXtec (the cow monitoring application), the limited vision of cattle by trying out cow goggles, the 17 UNSDGs, mountain farming as well as the national park Hohe Tauern. The excursion led to Austria’s tallest dam – the Kölnbreinsperre situated at 1,902 metres above sea level.

Agro Challenge (the former Agrolympics) has been organised for the fifth time since 2015. In Austria 8 different countries could win one or more of the 18 single competitions.
