Towards a Fair and Sustainable Food System for Europe

This session focuses on agroecology as an alternative to the current industrial food model. An approach aimed at looking at the world in a more sustainable and fairer way; a model for feeding humanity in a healthier manner, that respects the environment and cares for people, both producers and consumers. It will provide a positive, hopeful ending to the present cycle of meetings.
