    Conventional agriculture has increased food production significantly with less human labor involved but not without entailing high costs for farmers, communities and specifically for the environment – consequences that cannot be carried for much longer. The transition to more sustainable agriculture is not only desirable but necessary, given numerous long-term benefits arising through this reorientation. Applied onto a local setting such as the island of Samsø, the focus point in this thesis, more concrete measures are exemplarily investigated and elaborate how local communities can motivate change in agricultural systems. Based on the principle of change management this thesis gives an overview of the necessity of change and an insight into the complexity of motivating sustainable agriculture focused on the supply side, hence the farming community.
