Organic breeders, share your pictures – Use #BreedingABrightFuture on Twitter
#BreedingABrightFuture is LIVESEED’s social media campaign, aiming at raising awareness about the beauty and benefits of organic plant breeding to the wider public.
Show the world the beauty of your work
Using the hashtag #BreedingABrightFuture on Twitter, we call upon organic breeders to share their views and messages on how the sector contributes, amongst others, to sustainability and biodiversity, climate change adaptation, healthier and more diverse diets through increased nutrient content, and generates collaborations among different actors of the food system and the value chain. The campaign will be active for about 5 months, leading up to the LIVESEED-EUCARPIA conference on 08-10 March 2021.

The LIVESEED project will increase transparency and will provide recommendations on organic seeds. The project partners analyse national seed databases and factors influencing organic seed production and use. They also explore national policies, smart practices, build EU infrastructure and analyse issues on propagation. The partners also want to advance testing protocols to improve the availability of organic seeds, ensuring they are adapted to the realities of organic farmers.
