From 25th – 26th September 2018, the 12th European Organic Congress “Organic on every table: Added value for farmers, consumers and society” organized by IFOAM EU will gather high-level national and European decision-makers, the academia and key stakeholders from the food sector in Vienna, Austria.
The congress will look at how stakeholders and policymakers can work together to improve the livelihoods of farmers and rural communities, while at the same time protecting the environment and human health. The focus will be on how to make the food and farming sector more resilient, so that it can better cope with mounting environmental and socioeconomic pressures of the coming decade.
Within different plenaries and sessions, future policy reforms in farming, including the revision of the CAP, production rules for the new organic regulation and dealing with unfair trading practices as well as the transformation role of organic farming will be discussed in the context of these ongoing reforms and new economic models.
Interested parties are called to register as soon as possible, but no later than 15th of September 2018. The congress will be held in German and English (interpretation in both languages will be provided) on the first day and only in English on the second day.
