|Farming - ENOAS|
The European Network of Organic Agriculture Students:
- It is a network created by organic students for organic students
- Wants to enable students from different European countries studying organic agriculture or having an interest in it, to get in contact with each other
- Wants to promote organic agriculture as a valid alternative
- Organizes every summer a meeting, somewhere in Europe, where we meet, visit and discuss: the ENOAS Summer Meeting.
Our first focus in on Europe, however we have a world-wide interest.
History of ENOAS
ENOAS is the successor of the Nordic Student meetings. These meetings had been held in the Scandinavian, later on also the Baltic countries, for already 12 years once in a year. The idea was to meet in one of the Nordic/Baltic countries for about one week and to explore the respective country’s organic agricultural situation. Also these meetings were organised by students. To widen their cycle, the Nordic/Baltic students decided to send out an invitation for their next meeting to all European agricultural universities. Thus in summer 2002 25 students from 11 countries came for the summer meeting in Finland that was organised by the Eco University’s Eco Studies project at the University of Helsinki, Mikkeli Institute for Rural Research and Training and the student organization Elävä Maa. The overall theme of the week was the connection between organic farming and rural development but there was also one group of students busy to think about in what form future student meetings could be enabled. Finally in a plenary session it became obvious that enthusiasm for future meetings and contacts was so big that a board was formed that felt responsible for helping a future host country in organising another meeting. The country chosen for the next meeting was Germany as this is a central country in Europe and thus relatively easily reachable from all parts of Europe and because of Germany’ s role and importance in the development of organic agriculture.
A big debate went on about the name of our future network. ENOAS was agreed upon as this combines all the aspects that we considered as being important: A network spanning Europe, from and for students of organic agriculture.
Besides the big annual summer meeting – that we chose to name ESM, European Summer Meeting, we aimed at a variety of other ways and means to stay in contact. The easiest way was of course direct contact, but where this was impossible due to distance, internet could help via an internet platform. A newsletter compiled of contributions from all over Europe should be sent out by mail once a month. On an ENOAS website information could be provided for everybody’s use. Possible could be everything dealing with organic farming, for example information about studying abroad, possibilities for internships or practical farm work, interesting theses, jobs or literature.
For practical reasons, we are a subcommission of StEL, the study association of organic students at Wageningen University. We also use the facilities like postbox and office of StEL.
