Open Team’s mission is to support knowledge transfer and the scaling up of innovative projects in the fields of agroforestry, food security and responsible consumption, along with education, gender equality, renewable energy while ensuring respect for indigenous populations.

The Scale School program enables entrepreneurs who have implemented mature and sustainable solutions to transmit the keys to their success to other project leaders. This replication model is currently being used at a biointensive microfarm in Nepal, combining permaculture with local knowhow – a fruitful learning experience focused on the challenges of deploying new agricultural practices with possible applications in urban settings.
