La Via Campesina has launched a website combining agroecological practices, an online course on the farmer-to-farmer methodology as well as a resource library.

The spread of agroecology is a priority for La Vía Campesina (LVC), of which ANAP is a member. To strengthen this process, some schools for agroecological training are being organized from a political, technical and methodological standpoint, in nearly every country where LVC has presence.

Peasants have innovated and exchanged knowledge from ancient times, but the contemporary and systemized version of this exchange is known nowadays as the “Peasant to Peasant” (PtP) methodology.

PtP is a horizontal communication methodology where peasants themselves are the main players in the process of generating and sharing technologies. PtP sets knowledge free and awakens the enthusiasm to discover, recover and socialize the rich peasant knowledge, tightly linked to the territory, the memories and the socio-historic conditions of the place.

La Via Campesina presents a number of videos that globally picture the way in which the Agroecological Movement Peasant to Peasant (AMPTP) works within the ANAP, which has been a key to success in the spread of agroecology in Cuba.

Each of these videos has the objective of picturing some feature of the different main players, processes and experiences that altogether configure the AMPTP, and also some specific points of the PtP methodology in Cuba.

The series is divided thematically in 3 axis that are interrelated and complementary to each other:

  • Virtual course on the PTP Methodology
  • Agroecologic Peasant Agiculture
  • Urban and Suburban Agriculture

Available in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese.
