Agro - ecology and Sustainable Food System



Agro - ecology and Sustainable Food System

The green transformation refers to the comprehensive shift towards environmentally sustainable practices, technologies and policies in various sectors of society. It involves transitioning from resource-intensive and polluting practices to more sustainable and environmentally friendly alternatives, with the goal of mitigating climate change, reducing ecological impacts and promoting a more sustainable future.
The green transformation encompasses a range of areas, including energy production and consumption, transportation, waste management, agriculture, construction and more. It involves adopting renewable energy sources, improving energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, implementing circular economy principles, conserving natural resources and promoting eco-friendly practices and products.
In the context of Green Transformation becoming a priority for many countries, new policies have been created to strengthen the success of the Green Transformation program. In general, the whole society has a positive view and response to policies supporting Green Transformation. Within the framework of an annual international scientific conference, the School of Interdisciplinary Sciences and Arts, Vietnam National University, Hanoi organizes the International Conference "Green Transformation 2024" not only contributes to connecting and spreading new research results and methods, but also supports the development of domestic scientific staff to keep pace with the level of development in the world.
Among fields related to Green Transformation, Agro-ecology and Sustainable Food System are emerging as critical issues in Vietnam. These urgently necessitate additional research and deeper knowledge to sustain agricultural production through agro-ecological transition, enhance food processing, improve circular food supply chains and achieving sustainable nutrition through healthy diet transition, and. As a result, “Agro-ecology and Sustainable Food System” is designed as one of seven sessions of the International Conference "Green Transformation 2024".
This session will provide an effective platform for knowledge sharing by providing opportunities to academics and university students not only in Vietnam, but also in the worldwide. It will generate new perspectives, fill research gaps, and lead to opportunities for collaborative research intended to resolve the issues that commonly challenge countries in different regions.

Objectives of “Agro-ecology and Sustainable Food System” session
1. To provide a platform for sharing research outputs, and the exchange of knowledge and experiences related to agro-ecology and sustainable food system;
2. To motivate professions, young researchers and university students all over the world, particularly in Vietnam to engage in good quality research focusing on “agro-ecology and sustainable food system”;
3. To empower universities and research institutes that offer academic training in agriculture, agricultural economics, agribusiness, agricultural and food policies, food system, and related fields to play a greater role in capacity building for whole society.
