General Assembly

Every three years (2014, 2017, 2020...) IFOAM - Organics International in its entirety meets for the General Assembly (GA), where the truly democratic and participatory nature of the organization can be seen in action. The GA is a dynamic and lively gathering that inspires members, board and staff to continue working towards the realization of the vision of IFOAM - Organics International - to be a common voice for the organic movement.

In between In-Person GAs the membership of IFOAM - Organics International takes decisions by Electronic Vote, so called Electronic General Assemblies (eGAs).  The results of the eGAs you find here.
