The aim of this course is to introduce students to problem-focused interdisciplinary research in the context of agricultural land use and rural development. The course will explore global drivers of change while maintaining a focus on a local and Nordic setting. It will explore the concept of sustainability and introduce research tools required to investigate and assess the challenges associated with sustainable agriculture, land use and food/wind/bioenergy production, as well as the choices and trade-offs that actors may be facing.
