The 19th Organic World Congress will take place in India from November 9th until 11th. Registrations are open now.
The Congress is structured in four conference tracks: Main Track, Farmers' Track, Scientific Track, and Marketing Track.
The Main Track, composed of two parallel sessions, is a series of public discussions and debates by leaders from the organic movement on how we can best promote and implement the organic agenda. The overarching theme is "Global Adoption of Organic Principles for Truly Sustainable Agriculture" and the audience is invited to contribute to strategic discussions with the panel experts.
The Farmers’ Track provides a forum to highlight farmers’ work in organic especially with regards to innovations used on their farms. Presentations will be on the topics of Seeds & Biodiversity, Soil Fertility & Health, Soil Life & Plant Health, Ecological Farming Practices & Systems.
Introducing Organic 3.0
The Scientific Track is a platform where research results are presented and discussed in 20 sessions of 1.5 hours each. Papers must link to scientific disciplines such as soil, plant, animal, or economics. All papers should give at least an outline of how the research presented contributes to Organic 3.0 - The next phase of organic development.
The Marketing Track discusses innovative ideas for shortening value chains, for systems that build trust between actors, for promising marketing methods and for organic and fair trade alliance building. Papers are called for that deal with emerging trends in quality assurance, e.g. PGS (Participatory Guarantee Systems), CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), fair trade and other alternative and integrative systems.
Aiming to share experiences, innovations and knowledge
The Organic World Congress of IFOAM - Organics International is held every 3 years in a different country. The aim of the congress and related activities such as pre-conference, General Assembly, side-events and organic exhibition is to share experiences, innovations and knowledge about the organic world, while giving the organizing country global visibility.
