Right Livelihood College (RLC) 2023 Workshop Scholarships for Developing Countries

The workshop will take place in Bonn from September 25 (arrival date) to September 28 (departure date), 2023. PhD students and senior experts will be participating together with Nnimmo Bassey, Laureate of the “Alternative Nobel Prize” and Director of Health of Mother Earth Foundation, from Nigeria. Workshop language will be English.
Sustainable agriculture and local livelihoods have become ubiquitous notions in practice and sciences across the world. Beyond contributing more food production for growing populations and the conservation of ecosystems, sustainable agriculture has a high potential as an agent for positive rural transformation and pro-poor growth in many countries of the so-called Global South. However, the prevalent paradigm of economic development, often coupled with agricultural industrialization, leads to massive repercussions on the  sustainability of rural systems and on farmers’ livelihoods. Systems are changing rapidly and tremendously.

Hence questions  have to be addressed on the current and future role of agriculture and local livelihoods in the
context of economic growth, the conservation of ecosystems and food production – and generally on the future of rural areas in the so-called Global South.
Upon this backdrop, the workshop will provide remarkable case studies from rural areas in Africa, Asia and Latin America, conceptual approaches and current discourses. PhD students will have the opportunity to present and discuss their own research work in a cohesive transdisciplinary way by building on each participant’s expertise and experiences.

The workshop targets the following objectives:

  • To strengthen knowledge and understanding of concepts and methodological approaches,
  • To critically assess different pathways of agriculture, local livelihoods and rural development,
  • To present own case studies from Africa, Asia and Latin America,Tto promote transmission of expertise and experience as well as networking between PhD students, an “Alternative Nobel Prize” Laureate and other experts working from around the world.
