Organic in action

• The European Organic Action Plan • The reform of the Common Agricultural Policy • From Farm to Fork Strategy

The European Organic Congress 2020 is going digital!

The European Organic Congress provides a platform where policy-makers and expert speakers will update you about the latest policy developments and discuss our vision for a post-pandemic Europe. The topics we will cover include the EU Organic Regulation, an Organic Action Plan, the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy, the Farm to Fork Strategy as well as the possible impact of COVID-19 on our food and farming system.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many events are affected. As organisers of the congress, we want to ensure the well-being of participants, speakers and staff involved. Therefore, after internal discussions and risk assessment, IFOAM EU and our organising partner, BÖLW decided to bring the Congress to you.

We will welcome you with 5 different online sessions throughout 1-3 July. Consult the full programme.

Thank you!

Thank you for all the speakers and participants for being part of the Congress!
