IFOAM AgriBioMediterraneo Celebrating 25 Years!
IFOAM AgriBioMediterraneo is celebrating its 25 years and invites you to attend the International Conference “Agroecology for Organic Agriculture in the Mediterranean” at the Vignola Castle in Vignola, Italy, September 11 - 12, 2015 and will end Sunday, September 13, 2015 at the Fiera Sana in Bologna.
The aim of the International Conference is to improve interdisciplinary scientific dialogue, implement information exchange and dissemination of knowledge and innovation strategies on organic agriculture for the Mediterranean climate.
IFOAM-ABM strongly supports Agroecology in its full vision as “the science of applying ecological concept and principles to the design and management of sustainable food systems”.
The goal of the conference is to increase consciousness of researchers, policy makers and practitioners on the link between Agroecology and organic farming. The strengthening of such a link in the Mediterranean is an opportunity to promote multifunctionality, diversification of crops, biodiversity, local and direct sale, local seasonal and fresh production, education for food and health, alternative touristic development, entrepreneurship, and organic agriculture and more environmental and socio-economic benefits for the society as a whole.
