It facilitates access to learning materials on organic agriculture and agroecology from all over the world.

The Organic.Edunet Web portal currently provides access to almost 11,000 resources from 11 networked digital repositories and 2 user communities. It features a multilingual user interface available in sixteen (16) languages and four different search mechanisms for content retrieval. The portal includes a special section for schools, which contains educational resources and scenarios appropriate for school level, images and games. It provides access to educational scenarios and the two (2) educational scenario handbooks (for school and university level respectively) developed by project members to be used as guides for scenario development and usage. There is also information about the networked repositories and the institutional collections, the repository tools used and general information about the project.
