The project ” Modern techniques to ensure environmental sustainability in Eastern Europe” or MEET (621118-EPP-1-2020-1-BA-EPPJMO-MODULE) is an Erasmus + Jean Monnet module aims first to teach and then to promote the application of European Union (EU) practices for conserving natural resources while achieving sustainable development.
The main objective of the module is to improve capacity building and raise awareness of the environmental protection importance in public and private sector through the long-term educational process at HEI in Eastern Europe.
During 2021, 7 modules with over 100 participants were realized on the module. In the spring of 2022, classes will be held on modules B (Climate Change and its impact on human and natural systems), D (Sustainable soil and water management) and E (Drought in a changing environment).
In addition to these activities, the team gathered around the MEET project, ie the Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences, University of Sarajevo, participated in other projects with similar goals, among which we highlight:

We especially emphasize the BUGI project, which aimed to develop a master’s program and a lifelong learning (LLL) course in the field of urban agriculture.
The Sarajevo Regional Development Agency SERDA, in cooperation with the Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences, University of Sarajevo, has developed and accredited a lifelong learning program for the “Garden of Urban Agriculture“. The training program is accredited by the Ministry of Education of Sarajevo Canton. Anyone who wants to learn more about urban agriculture can apply for this program.
