Organic's contribution to the European Green Deal

The European Organic Congress 2021 will take place online, live from Lisbon, on 16-18 June 2021

This year’s Congress, with the title “Organic’s contribution to the European Green Deal” aims to inspire the participants by focusing on how the agri-food sector’s initiatives enhance the transition towards a more sustainable food system, through the aid of leading examples from representatives and experts amidst the organic sector. The New EU Organic Regulation 848/2018 will also be explored, while focusing on its implications for the objective of 25% EU organic land by 2030. We will dive deep into how organic districts, living labs and farm demonstrations contribute to rural development and the success of the Organic Action Plan. Moreover, organic’s contribution to climate change mitigation, with the EU Green Deal, the Biodiversity and Farm to Fork strategies and last but not least, the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) will be key themes for the Congress’ debates.

Junte-se ao Congresso Europeu de Agricultura Biológica 2021, do 16 ao 18 de Junho

O Congresso de Agricultura Biológica 2021 irá decorrer on-line, em direto de Lisboa, do 16 ao 18 de Junho de 2021.

O Congresso deste ano, que terá como tema principal “A contribuição da agricultura biológica no Pacto Ecológico Europeu”, tem como objetivo inspirar os participantes ao colocar a tónica sobre a forma como as iniciativas do sector agroalimentar pretendem otimizar a transição para sistemas alimentares mais sustentáveis, através de exemplos de referência de representantes e peritos provenientes do sector agrícola. A nova regulamentação Europeia sobre a agricultura biológica 848/2018 será também aprofundada, mantendo a ênfase nas implicações decorrentes para atingir os objetivos comunitários dos 25% das terras em modo de produção biológico até 2030. Iremos explorar de que forma as bio-regiões, os laboratórios vivos e as demonstrações em explorações agrícolas podem contribuir para o desenvolvimento das zonas rurais e para o sucesso do Plano de Ação Biológico. Além disso, o contributo da agricultura biológica na atenuação das alterações climáticas, com o Pacto Ecológico Europeu, a Biodiversidade e outras estratégias do tipo “desde a exploração até à mesa”, e por último, mas não menos importante, a Política Agrícola Comum (PAC) serão os temas centrais dos vários debates do Congresso.
