The Demeter International Members' Assembly was held from 13 to 18 June in Finland. In view of the challenges occurring in our time we need a paradigm shift in agriculture. The Demeter actors from all regions of the world saw in the biodynamic method a holistic model for societal change. Representatives of Demeter and biodynamic associations in 23 countries on five continents gathered to discuss and adopt strategies for taking forward agriculture and the food economy. There was also agreement that new gene technologies like CRISPR-Cas, Cisgenetics and TALEN have to be regulated, since they are technical interventions in cell and genome.
