In order to transform the current food system into an environmentally friendly, sustainable system, it requires the increasing implementation of sustainable niche innovations in Europe. Therefore, the food system change online congress aims at facilitating and promoting the exchange between diverse European niche players in the food system. Next to the niche players themselves, also representatives from associations and federations from the environmental and nature protection sector as well as companies, foundations, journalists and citizens from all over Europe are invited to participate.
The Food System Change Online Congress will offer an exchange platform and will provide valuable insights into the diverse work of niche pioneers across Europe. Dr. agr. Johannes Eisenbach will give us a glimpse into the practice and advantages of biocyclic vegan agriculture in Greece and explain what the newly developed Biocyclic Vegan Standard is about. In another session, we will explore the unique concept of Regionalwert AG and how it keeps spreading in Germany ever since its first initiative in Freiburg. Apart from the niches, we will enjoy the introduction into transformation sciences by Stephanie Wunder from the Ecologic Institute in order to understand how in theory niches can become mainstream and thereby change the food system. We are looking forward to these inputs and questions from you!
