Event Details

Organic food is healthy, environment friendly and trendy – but how does organic production impact and relate to global food security or the livelihoods and income of smallholders in developing countries? Do we understand enough about the contribution of organic farming in addressing some of the most critical global challenges we are facing? 

Helvetas and GreenBuzz are bringing you a thematic summer apero, which will kick off GreenBuzz food sustainability event series!

The event is hosted by Helvetas at its exhibition – "We eat the World". You will have the opportunity to explore the exhibition individually or with a guide before the input session with Frank Eyhorn, Co-Team Leader Rural Economy, Organic & Fairtrade Competence Center of Helvetas. He is an expert on organic agriculture, fair trade, value chains, market development, certification and internal control systems, sustainable livelihoods. The kick off talk will be followed by informal Q&A session and a buzzing networking apero. 


To get more into the topic, you can read Sustainable Agriculture for a Sustainable Planet  an article by Frank Eyhorn and Heiko Specking.



18.30-19.30 Guided tour or individual stroll through the exhibition 

19.30-20.15 Official welcome by GreenBuzz and input by Frank Eyhorn from Helvetas, Q&A session

The event takes place at Folium, Sihlcity. It is easy to reach by Bus 72 (stop Sihlcity Nord) or by Tram 5, 13 and 17 (Sihlcity Nord).
