AbstractThe present paper aims not only to identify the problems that the model of conventional farming has caused to the environment, and those related to the education of farmers in our country, but also to view these issues as a challenge, that can lead to the establishment of so-called municipal education centers for sustainable agriculture in rural municipalities, by taking advantage of the new local government architecture, according to L.3852/2010. Programmes at the above-mentioned education centers will be applied on the basis of the three dimensions, namely, lifelong learning, systemic thinking and sustainable agriculture, as a learning objective. They constitute essential preconditions for the transition from the model of conventional farming to that of sustainable agriculture.
