by Redaktion (comments: 0)
This year's IFOAM Organic World Congress takes place in Istanbul on 13 - 15 October 2014. It has three plenary and eight breakout sessions with more than 250 presentations. During the congress an exhibition is held for scientists, institutions and companies to present their work.
The General Assembly is organised for IFOAM members including a motion bazaar on a boat trip on the Bosporus. Over 600 organizations use their democratic rights and elect the World Board, decide the global organic positions and move member motions for two days. A Turkish pre-conference concentrates on the national organic development. Side-events such as social events, film screenings, excursions, visits of (organic) markets and touristic tours are planned on the margins of the congress.
Early bird prices for the 18th Organic World Congress registration (-15%) are available until 15 May 2015. Registering to the OWC will give people access to the sessions in three tracks, workshops, inspiring talks of world-renowned keynote speakers, the organic exhibition and a congress dinner.
This year, the congress is hosted by the Bugday Association. The congress is expected to bring together around 2,000 stakeholders worldwide around the theme Building Organic Bridges. Details and registration: http://www.owc2014.org/
