Organic and Climate – Breakthrough Progress in the EU

July 30, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

As part of its effort to become climate neutral by 2050, the EU’s Green Deal calls for 25 percent of Europe’s agriculture to be transitioned to organic (nearly triple the current area) by 2030.

Join the Organic Trade Association and representatives from the EU to learn more about their effort to create a fair, healthy and environmentally beneficial food system.

  • Johanna Mirenda, Organic Trade Association (Discussion leader)
  • Karst Kooistra, Tradin Organic
  • Ariane Lotti Tenuta, San Carlo Organic Farm
  • Silvia Schmidt, IFOAM EU

The webinar will discuss how leaders in the organic movement were able to successfully advocate for organic’s inclusion in this sweeping program. Hear from organic industry participants in the farming and processing/trade sector about priorities for specific action plans to implement and achieve the sustainability targets set out in the Green Deal’s Farm to Fork and Biodiversity Strategies.
