IFOAM EU is celebrating its 10th European Organic Congress in the Netherlands 4- 6 April 2016 discussing ways to profile organic as a leading solution.The theme of this year’s Congress is transforming food and farming through organics.
The participants and speakers of the Congress will look at how organic and agro-ecological approaches can really lead future agri-food systems and contribute to the development of EU policies that fundamentally address political, environmental and societal challenges, says the website.
The Congress aims to build on the outcomes of the IFOAM EU Vision 2030 process which culminated in the launch of “Transforming Food and Farming: An Organic Vision for Europe” in Latvia in 2015 and the strategies (see earlier report). Together with diverse food and farming stakeholders, the practical strategies to develop organics in the long term and shape the EU market and policy developments so critical to transforming food and farming in the short to medium-term should be developed.
