Recently Nordjyllands Landbrugsskole (Denmark) and APB Provinciaal Onderwijs Antwerpen (Belgium), started a new project together. The goal is to have students learn about agriculture in another country. The 2 last years the school located in Belgium had 4-6 students come to Denmark in an internship on Danish farms, to learn about agriculture and Danish culture.
This year the roles were reversed. Nordjyllands Landbrugsskole had 7 students in Belgium for 3 weeks. The idea with the experience is to expand the students perception of agriculture, get new ideas + see that one common goal: To produce food in various ways, can be done differently.
The 7 students ended up having a trip which gave new ideas, friends and contacts which goes beyond borders, and are all ready for a new adventure out in the big world when the chance once again arises.
