Discover Best Practice Farming for a Sustainable 2050

From the University of Western Australia (UWA), this beginner-level, online course may be of interest to agriculturalists, farmers, and even home gardeners concerned about the environmental impact of growing food. The course is taught by Graeme Martin of UWA, who has not only thoroughly studied agriculture and sustainability, but grew up in a farming family in Western Australia. The course explores eco-friendly farming options, how to implement sustainable farming strategies, and how to ensure that sustainable farming can be profitable anywhere in the world. The course design is based on the idea that a sustainable future requires a multi-disciplinary approach, addressing issues with the agriculture industry, rural communities and infrastructure, the conservation of biodiversity, and more. The course, which requires roughly nine hours to complete, is free to enroll in and has flexible deadlines. It is taught in English, but subtitles are available in Arabic, French, Portuguese (European), Italian, Vietnamese, German, Russian, and Spanish. The course is offered through Coursera.
