“Smart change – towards a sustainable CAP”

  • High level speakers have confirmed their place at the Congress 
  • Expert panels tackle the future needs of European organic regulations
  • Early Bird Registration Extended to 10 March!

High level speakers have confirmed their place at the 6th European Organic Congress. Jerzy Bogdan Plewa, the newly appointed Deputy Director General of DG Agriculture will review the European Commission’s CAP proposals towards 2020 during the high level policy makers panel on April 17th. Joining the panel will also be Morten Lautrup-Larsen, the EU-advisor from the Danish Ministry for food, agriculture and fisheries, who will discuss the Danish EU Presidency’s goals for the new CAP.

The Congress will also largely focus on the development and future advancements in European organic regulation, primarily on the state of play three years after the implementation. Many events of the past year have illustrated the necessity of continued efforts in ensuring credible and sustainable organic regulations. These topics will be covered during the expert panel on organic regulation on April 17th and followed up with two workshop sessions.

The complete Congress programme is available on the Congress website.
