Transforming food&farming an organic vision for Europe in 2030


Iím proud to be part of the organic community. Proud because it continues to drive change in food and farming systems in Europe and worldwide, because it is committed to actively shape these systems in the future and because it is ready to build on its successes that have seen organic food and farming develop from a niche to become a real alternative.
But the European organic movement needs to take stock of what organic has become. In a rapidly changing world we have to be able to cope with new political, environmental and societal challenges.
The future role of organic food and farming for us, for farmers, for food production and for society has indeed been a focus of thought and action for many of our members. This is one of the reasons why IFOAM EU launched its participatory vision exercise to try to define where the organic movement may be in 2030 and to help us prepare proactively to face the future. The next step will be to agree the strategies and actions needed to get there. Fifteen years is long enough to plausibly consider changes in technology, society and environment, while at the same time, sufficiently short to prepare a viable strategy.
