Description of Project

The conference aimed at strengthening the activism for organic farming as an agricultural alternative which respects the environment and the consumer. The work of the organic farming associations should find support in Central and Eastern Europe.

The conference presented organic farming as the most sustainable form of active environmental protection. With its positive effects on employment and as a contribution to an adequate consumer policy, it is, moreover, the most important element in the development of the rural areas.

The top-class team including many ministers and decision-makers from Central and Eastern Europe, a.o.: Renate Künast, the German minister of consumer protection, food and agriculture guaranteed  positive momentum.
