The Organic Academy

Through training platforms, manuals and programs, IFOAM - Organics International has been addressing training needs for decades.

Since 2012, with the launch of the first Organic Leadership Course (OLC) in South Asia, training and capacity building finally have their own home in the Organic Academy. We also offer Tailored Training Programs to a growing organic sector.

The OLC is our flagship training program, taking place in regions across the globe. This intensive, one-year course empowers participants to assume greater responsibility in finding organic solutions to address the world's environmental and social challenges. 

Find resources and documentation related to recent and ongoing OLCs here.
