The conference that launched the network of European cities committed to organic farming, the Organic Cities Network Europe, was held in January 2018 in Paris. Many cities have signed up to this important initiative: Nuremberg and Lauf (Germany), Milan (Italy), Vienna and Seeham (Austria), Paris and Correns (France), Porec (Croatia), Växjö (Sweden) and others.
The Organic Cities Network Europe and IFOAM EU signed a Memorandum of Understanding to give a strong foundation to their collaboration to work together towards a fair, environmentally conscious, healthy and caring food and farming system. The Organic Cities Network Europe and IFOAM EU will cooperate on the future of the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP), regional and local food supply chains, Green Public Procurement (GPP) policies, research and innovation, the true cost of food, increasing the transparency of supply chains, and access to land for new organic farmers.
To make the European organic movement’s shared ‘Organic Vision for Europe to 2030’ a reality, IFOAM EU published a roadmap to sustainable food and farming systems in Europe – including a publication and website with inspiring initiatives. The roadmap is accompanied by a website – www.euorganic2030.bio – featuring initiatives leading the way. Continua a leggere “Organic Cities Network Europe and IFOAM”
