Ecology pillar | Represented by the colour blue
We recognize ecology – the scientific and social scientific worldview — as the basis for the production of food and fibre and see it as the bedrock for the healthy functioning of the earth and its subsidiary systems.
In this context we seek the adoption of the term in the wider community and its application to explain productive ecosystems and healthy communities.
- To enhance the farmer and communities understanding of the role of ecology in the food and fibre production.
- To promote an understanding of ecological principles as being fundamental to the survival and preservation of our planet and to promote their implementation as a core activity.
- To foster the development of communities and their networking to enhance ecological principles in food and fibre production
- To advance an understanding of systems thinking and its role in developing holistic outcomes.
