As the global human population increases, livestock farms must adapt to prive more livestock products with respect of
animal welfare, environmental sustainability and safeguard of workers. The future of the farmers in the post-pandemic
world is at stake. With the growth of population and the increasing demand for animal protein we need industrialized livestock production systems. For global animal agriculture, at any one time, there are about 25 billion poultry, 2.25 billion sheep and goats, 1.5 billion cattle and 1 billion pigs. Every year, we consume 50 billion chickens, 1.5 billion pigs, 1 billion sheep and goats and 300 million cattle and about 173 million tons of fish, with about 80 million tons farmed. These numbers are currently increasing year on-year as the industrialized model of livestock and fish production spreads to developing countries, especially in Asia with associated increases in antimicrobial and large chemical use with an irreversible damage to the environment. The risks and damages associated with intensive livestock production can be limited with the introduction of new technologies, the digitalization and a strategic approach of corporate social responsibility for environmental protection and sustainable development offered by high education and VET education with the involvement of the the farmers by the support of new young specialists with green skills and digital know-how. The production efficiency and the environment protection with sustainable development could be performed by an approach which safeguards animals, human beings and the environment. This VET project can increase green skills and facilitating the process of "smart" education in livestock education system.The project will solve important challenges for competitive and sustainable markets included the importance of animal welfare in modern farms. Digitalization through precision livestock farming technologies has the potential to address consumers' increasing concerns about animal welfare, environmental sustainability and public health, while also preparing to meet the increasing demand for animal products as a result of the growing human population.

Our choice of a project partner is no accident! It is not a chance: we actively seek them with care attention. The choice of the project partners depends on their great experience on support the tasks assigned, international projects and organizing experiences. CCIP is experienced in the agri-food and livestock, and chaired the Orange Network consisted of governmental and non governmental institutions, associations, consortiums involved in the agriculture and livestock in respective countries and territories. This Network idea started in Italy on 2012 during a city twinning between italian and austrian rural and mountain farmers LAG where the agriculture is grown and processed by many centuries. The network generates ideas, transfer of know-how, business meetings, twinnings, workshop, meetings, istitutional partnership, Corporate Social Responsibility, travel of farmer s delegations, mobilize funds, create new jobs and provide education and training. The mission is: valorisation of territories, agroecology, new technologies, development or rural tourism, modernization and introduction of automation in the livestock.  Orange Network improves the quality of life for all people involved in the rural, mountain farming and livestock by improving and developing global capacities to respond to new challenges and opportunities in helping to eliminate socio-economic disadvantage, improve food security and conserve and protect environment, in order to stimulate broad-based economic growth and sustainable development.

CCIP Chamber for Cooperation and Incentive to Partnership and Orange Network with SLOVENSKA POLNOHOSPODARSKA UNIVERZITA V NITRE (Slovakia) and AGRICULTURAL UNIVERSITY OF ATHENS are in close contact in sectors of common interest such as education and training in modern technologies for agriculture and livestock.
