Food Systems 3.0 – a pre-conference event at the 19th Organic World Congress

Join us on 8 November 2017 in New Delhi, India for a full day of intensely enriching and inspiring experience.

How to manifest Organic 3.0? In a 3.0 world, food chains are succeeded by food systems – inclusive societies continually improving toward best practice based on organic principles and practices – allowing producers better livelihoods, healthier diets for consumers, and cleaner more sustainable ecosystems. The synergy created through heightened consumer awareness, innovative market mechanisms, and favorable policy is already happening in Organic Food Systems. Sustainability works from the farm and local ecosystem outward, rejuvenating communities and strengthening the connection between rural and urban areas, and fostering the mutual support and interdependence of value chains. Join us for a showcase and discussion of best practice examples and leading thought from around the globe – present, share, learn, and network!

Organized by the Organic Food System Program, Food Systems 3.0 will showcase how Organic 3.0 is really happening on the ground. Come with your best ideas, achievements, and an open mind.
