IFOAM EU Vice-President Marian Blom at Tech&Bio
18-19 September 2019, Bourg-lès-Valence, France
On 18 September, our Vice-President, Marian Blom, attended the Tech&Bio fair. On the first day of this biannual conference on new organic and alternative farming techniques, she participated to a conference on the change of scale in organic organised by INRA. In her talk, Marian presented the development of the European organic regulation and organic production systems. She also introduced IFOAM EU’s work and presented the organic movement's vision for the next phase of organic development both globally, with Organic 3.0, and in Europe, with our Vision for 2030.
Tech&Bio targets all professionals involved in agriculture: from farmers to teachers, students, researchers, consultants etc. The themes of this year’s edition spanned from farming to product promotion and involved technical, scientific and business operators, as well as local authorities.
Since its launch in 2007, innovation has always been the essence of this event: during the forum participants discuss and share experiences, techniques, practices and expertise. Thanks to more than 100 field demonstrations, farmer and business testimonials and farm visits, organic and conventional farming learned from each other. National and international experts create the conference and workshop programme with a focus on farming techniques and marketing. In this context, organic farming worked as a catalyst for the transition of farming and food systems.
