Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2008
This description of Beatriz Fadón Junyent's work was prepared when Beatriz Fadón Junyent was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
Modern agricultural policy and the heavy subsidization of industrial farms in Europe have stripped farmers of their political and economic influence, creating an overall state of listlessness in rural Spain and driving many to abandon the profession altogether. In response, Beatriz Fadón Junyent is helping traditional farmers transition to eco-farming to revitalize the industry and improve environmental sustainability.
