Youth unites for a greener, healthier, and fairer agriculture & food system 8-9 July 2024

Following the successful first edition in 2022, we are organising the second edition of Organics Europe’s Youth Event (OEYE). This year’s edition will promote cross-disciplinary collaboration and generate innovative ideas for the future of organic, driving change towards sustainable practices in agriculture. CIHEAM Bari will host us 8-9 July 2024 in Bari, Italy.

What is IFOAM Organics Europe’s Youth Event?

Our youth event welcomes young individuals passionate about organic and sustainable agriculture, providing a platform to welcome the next generation in organic. It is open to all those who would like to broaden their networks with like-minded individuals across Europe, exchange innovative ideas on transitioning towards a more sustainable food system, and delve into the potential of organic food and farming practices.

Why join the OEYE?

Key words are sharing, learning from each other and meeting new people. Summarised, event participants will:

  • Meet a diverse group of professionals, including farmers, students, activists, young industry professionals and politicians;
  • Gain meaningful insights into sustainable practices across the food supply chain;
  • Engage in panel discussions, group work, educational lectures and workshops about current hot topics in the organic and food and farming in general;
