People of all ages across Europe are hungry for change and want to see better agri-food policies based on agro-ecological principles.

Good food and farming practices already taking place across Europe will be highlighted.

- Assess the implementation of the reformed CAP 2014-2020, prospects of agricultural sustainability and of rural renaissance.
- Identify milestones to support transition food and agriculture systems based on agroecological approaches.
This conference and gathering will include plenaries and workshop sessions to exchange:
- information on experience of and strategies for implementing agroecological solutions in Member States and regions under the new CAP;
- concepts for how to integrate agri-food policies with related health, trade and development policies;
- views on a common agenda for transforming food and agricultural systems by 2020.
Both high level speakers and participatory methodologies will be used to get the most from this important gathering. The results and outcomes will be used as basis for the development of a Roadmap for Change towards agricultural sustainability and rural renaissance.
