VIRTUAL EVENT: Climate neutral food and wood: Showcasing best climate practices in agriculture, forestry, food systems and the bioeconomy

The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Climate Action (DG CLIMA) and EASME are organising a series of webinars to showcase successful LIFE and Horizon 2020 projects in the areas of agriculture, food systems, forestry, and the bio-economy. These online events will feature project representatives, experts from the EU Institutions and agencies as well as other key stakeholders. They will discuss best practices, lessons learned, and future policy initiatives.

This event is connected to several EU initiatives under the European Green Deal: the upcoming review of legislation on land use, land use change and the forestry sector; the upcoming new strategy on climate change adaptation; the recently adopted Farm to Fork Strategy for a fair, healthy and environmentally friendly food system; and the implementation of the Bioeconomy Strategy.
