  • Agroecological Symbiosis

    Rachel Mazac, Sophia E. Hagolani Albov, Hanna L. Tuomisto

    Chapter from the book: Krieg C. & Toivanen R. 2021. Situating Sustainability: A Handbook of Contexts and Concepts.


    This chapter explores how communities can redesign food systems so as to integrate them into the surrounding ecologies. After providing important global context for industrial food systems and their challenge to sustainability, the authors turn to Palopuro’s model of Agroecological Symbiosis (AES) as an alternative that embeds food and energy within the social fabric. This revisioning of production and consumption draws on both past practices and future imaginaries.
