Organized by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) the ‘Bonn Sustainability Days’ comprise a number of events that aim to provide an in-depth discussion of sustainable agriculture guidelines and policy recommendations for the sector.
The discussion rounds on sustainability will be broken down into multiple expert workshops, keynote speeches and a field trip, before transitioning to a public discussion forum, where renowned international leaders of sustainability visions will share their practical experiences in close-up, personal meetings with participants. The forum in turn will culminate in the public presentation of the conclusions of these four days of exchange.
