Agroecology Europe Forum, 26-28 September 2019 in Heraklion, Crete, Greece
The second Agroecology Europe Forum will be a interactive and transdisciplinary event on agroecology, combining different approaches and types of activities. Participants have the chance to exchange, discuss and networking with stakeholders representing the three main elements of agroecology: science, practice and movement.
The programme will include plenary and parallel sessions, panel discussions and workshops, with a limited number of oral presentations in certain sessions. Posters will be exhibited in an open space setting to foster engagement among participants. Topics will include species diversity in action and mapping agroecology. IFOAM AgriBioMediterraneo will also participate to the Forum.
The organiser of the event, Agroecology Europe, is a membership-based association that wants to exchange knowledge and experiences on agroecology and supports the transition towards agroecological practices and policies. It intends to place agroecology high on the European agenda of sustainable development of farming and food systems by fostering interactions between actors in science, practice and social movements, and by facilitating knowledge sharing and action.
