VIRTUAL EVENT: FFA2021 Annual Conference – Food System Renewal

23 March 2021. FFA2021 Annual Conference – Food System Renewal.

The annual conference of the Forum for the Future of Agriculture takes place every spring in Brussels. This year the annual conference is online through a virtual platform. The purpose of the Forum is to stimulate open discussions on the future of European and world agriculture and assess what should and what can be achieved over time, attaching equal weight to two challenges: food security and environmental security. The Brussels event is accompanied every year by regional conferences across Europe. The Forum is now established as the premier meeting place for those who have a stake in the future of agriculture and has been addressed by European Commissioners, MEPs, National Government Ministers, Industry Leaders, Academics, NGOs, International Organisations, including OECD and FAO.
