September: the 11th IFOAM EU European Organic Congress in Estonia (IT)


The 11th IFOAM EU European Organic  Congress “Transforming food & farming – Making it Happen” will take place from 5-7 September 2017 in Tallinn, Estonia. This year's Congress will look at how stakeholders and policymakers can work together to reach the European Organic Vision 2030, with the launch of a roadmap for making it happen. Over the last two years, IFOAM EU has been working proactively with the organic movement and like-minded groups to devise strategies for developing organics in Europe. In Estonia, we will look at different initiatives already happening throughout Europe that demonstrate how policymakers and stakeholders already work together to inspire others.

Part of this conversation will also look at how such initiatives can flourish, in the context of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the EU Climate Commitments expected to strongly influence the EU’s agri-food policy agenda in the coming years – from the Common Agricultural Policy to the development of food policies at national and regional level.

High-level speakers have already confirmed their participation: Tarmo Tamm - Minister of Rural Affairs of the Republic of Estonia, Emile Frison - Member of International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems, Karl Falkenberg - Senior Adviser for Sustainable Development to the President of the European Commission.
