Shaping Europe's Organic Future Together:
Making an impact on the EU organic legal framework
within the future CAP
2 - 4 July 2013
2013 will be a key year for organic food and farming. The European Commission launched a review of the European legal and political context for organic food and farming, and a legal proposal to amend the current regulation ((EC) No 834/2007) may be submitted by the Commission to the European Parliament and Council at the end of 2013. The EU organic action plan from 2004 may also be updated. Together with the reform of the CAP, this will define a new political framework for organic food and farming in the EU.
Contribute to the process!
Your input at this congress will be used to feed into the IFOAM EU proposals provided to the Commission. Gathering opinions from and mobilising the European organic sector is thus the focus of the 7th European Organic Congress, organised by the IFOAM EU Group in co-operation with the Lithuanian EU Presidency.
We expect 250 people from the Commission, the European Parliament, Member states, the organic sector and agri-environmental stakeholders. Useful discussions and lectures, excellent networking opportunities and Lithuanian culture await you. Looking forward to seeing you in Vilnius.
July is the right time to act: let's shape Europe's Organic Future together
