Welcoming the national Organic Ambassadors to Brussels, 21 June
On June 21, the European Commission hosted a meeting of the recently created EU network of national Organic Ambassadors. These organic ambassadors are officials appointed by the Member States championing organic production at national level and serve as contact point for the exchange of best practices at EU level. During the meeting, IFOAM Organics Europe’s Director, Eduardo Cuoco, shared best practices on the topics of bio-districts and short supply chains.
After the meeting, IFOAM Organics Europe hosted an informal organic reception in cooperation with the European Commission and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability within the framework of the SchoolFood4Change project. The event was an occasion to network and discuss how Green Public Procurement (GPP) and local food policy can boost organic in the EU.
