Objective of the workshop

The war in Ukraine has put food security in the centre of the political debate.

While availability and affordability of food is a top priority for all, increasing production at the expense of the environment is not the solution.

 We need to make our food production systems less reliant from external inputs (fossil fuel, fertilisers, imported feed, etc.) and more resilient.

In this workshop, we will shed light on this debate and discuss solutions for climate-neutral farming while ensuring food security. Inevitably, we will also need to debate the EU’s dependence on feed and fertiliser imports as well as the need for dietary change and reduction of food waste.
