The e-college for regenerative agriculture is a joint effort

The educational initiative from Svensk Kolinlagring is based on the online course “The e-college for regenerative agriculture” that the foundation Baltic Sea Action Group created in Finland. In collaboration with Bäckedal Folk High School and various advisers, the Finnish course will now be adapted to the conditions of Swedish agriculture. Behind Svensk Kolinlagring are Albaeco and Miljömatematik, together with a large number of researchers, farmers, food companies and other important actors.

Svensk Kolinlagring promotes regenerative agriculture in Sweden

Svensk Kolinagring is a collaboration that aims to sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in Swedish arable land. The goal is to stop climate change, increase humus content and fertility, preserve and create ecosystem services, and improve yields and profitability in Swedish agriculture. Svensk Kolinlagring is based on cooperation, openness, courage and innovation. The new training makes it possible to share the insights and results of the work. This way, the effect on the climate can be more significant. The funding is for two years, but the ambition is for the training to be available also after this.
