2017 Summer Program "A Sustainable Food System" - here is the brochure: 2017_COURSE_GUIDE_SUMMER PROGRAM.pdf 

Program overview

Every year in late spring, Groupe ESA offers a unique four-week program to international undergraduate and graduate students.

The topic

Approximately 40 students coming from our international network of University partners discover facets of the French agriculture and the traditional food products "system" during one month. From production to consumers, the program will allow students to understand the "terroir" production through several angles such as History, Sociology, Anthropology, Political, Economy, Science, Food science, Crop production and Agroecology and Animal production. The purpose of the program is to show to students links between agriculture, food industry and food culture with a sustainable development perspective. The program will also introduce them to the "French way of life" and to France's role in the European Union.
