How do agriculture professionals define agricultural literacy? What does it mean to be agriculturally literate?
During the past few years, the agri-food system has come under strong criticism. As a result, perceptions of the public have been challenged dramatically by books, calling attention to the lack of public understanding of the decisions we make when producing food.
Based on the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) , they have also raised many long-term agricultural literacy issues related to the management in food production, resources, and sustainability. In the meanwhile, how do we tap on the diverse Islamic market and shed lights on Halal Literacy?
The 2022 International Association for Agriculture Sustainability (IAAS) Annual Meeting was held as a webinar on the 2nd of December. This webinar addressed themes such as how to “Deepen Agriculture Literacy to Enhance the Value of Agriculture,” “Reversing Rural Poverty through Agricultural Education” and “Halal Development: Trends, Opportunities and Challenges,” as well as successfully brought together nearly 300 scholars, researchers, industry professionals and investors from 30 countries to discuss Agriculture literacy and Halal development.
