Save the date: Organic Innovation Days 2023 on citizen-driven transformation of European food systems

Save the date for this year’s edition of TP Organics’ Organic Innovation Days, which will take place in Brussels on 25-26 October. Under the theme “Citizen-driven transformation of European food systems“, we will explore the role of citizens in making our food systems more sustainable, as well as the potential of organic to contribute to long-term food security.

The first day of the event will take place on 25 October, from 10:00 to 14:00, at BluePoint Brussels. It will be dedicated to the EU Mission on soil health, “A Soil Deal for Europe”, with a series of presentations and a high-level, interactive panel debate about how the mission, and the sustainable land management practices it supports, in particular organic and agroecological farming, can contribute to food security. The event will include a discussion with the audience and a networking lunch. Take this unique opportunity to meet and exchange with members of TP Organics, organic stakeholders, and policymakers!

In the afternoon of Day 1, the TP Organics Stakeholder Forum will be held as a space for more in-depth conversation among the members of TP Organics, including about the latest innovations, policy developments at European level, challenges faced by the organic sector, and potential ways forward.

The second day will take place at Herman Teirlinck Gebouw, Brussels. For this day, TP Organics partners with the European research project FoodSHIFT 2030, the final conference of which will be held on this day. From 10:00 to 16:00, there will be a series of panel debates under the title: “The path to sustainable food systems”. The first two debates will focus on the FoodSHIFT 2030 project, with a review of their results through the lenses of the EU Farm to Fork strategy and FOOD 2030, and how FoodSHIFT 2030 has supported food system transformation. The subsequent debates will explore citizen empowerment for food system transformation through participatory methods, what we really mean by less meat, and how future city regions can activate and implement food system transformation.
