“‘From farm to fork’, sustainable food system and the EU Green Deal”, a Club of Rome online event (IT)


The Club of Rome, in collaboration with Agroecology europe and ipes-food is organising an online conference debate:“’From farm to fork’, sustainable food system and the EU Green Deal” on Thursday 8th of October 2020, 5pm – 7.30pm.

Our current Food system is not sustainable (fast decline of farmers’ populations, soil degradation, responsibility in the climate and biodiversity crisis, excessive water usage, waste along the chain, syndemic of obesity, …) and has to be changed if we are to make the transition necessary to achieve the goals of this Green Deal and to build a better and resilient society.

  • How should the CAP be reformed to comply with this vision of a sustainable future?
  • What should be the roles of the consumers/citizens, the farmers, the agrobusiness and the authorities?

Key thematic topics will be covered such as the production (agricultural and environmental), the social (health and consumption) and economic dimensions of the food systems before a transversal and systemic approach will be proposed followed by a debate with all major actors. Online interaction with the participants will be encouraged during this conference/debate. Scientists, NGO and business representatives, EU civil servants, thinkers will participate and exchange with the panellists, speakers and audience.
