14 young researchers recorded their voices and opinions about RECOMS three action learning projects they needed to tackle during their second training event in Coventry, UK. They share their thoughts, ideas and frustrations about researching communities and becoming one.
14 young researchers got together within the frame of RECOMS second training event in February in Coventry, UK to deal with various community projects and work with local stakeholders on food sovereignty and agroecology.
