ALP Class 17 will travel to Portugal and Spain for their capstone study. Their fourteen days of travel will include a time in Lisbon, Portugal and the surrounding area and southern Spain including Seville, Antequera, Granada, Cordoba and Madrid. The study agenda will provide extensive exploration into the diverse aspects of agricultural including the cork, fishing, horticultural, and animal sectors. Meetings will be held with industry leaders, with government decision makers, and local influencers to better understand the agricultural industry. The group will be studying efforts that have transformed the rural economies in both countries. The time in both countries will provide an opportunity to learn about the political, economic, cultural and social landscape that makes these countries unique. The ALP Class 17 members will be sharing a bit of Hoosier Hospitality during their travels.
