First Agroecology Europe Forum

Fostering synergies between movements, science and practice. 25-27 October 2017, Lyon, France.


The Forum is open to all kinds of actors and intends to foster interactions between various stakeholders such as scientists, practitioners, social movements, civil society and policy makers, by facilitating knowledge sharing and common action.

Aim and Scope of the Forum

The First Agroecology Europe Forum intends to bring together actors from a wide horizon, willing to share their views and knowledge to design the agricultural and food systems of tomorrow. Tackling challenges related to global changes, environmental issues, consumer and citizen expectations require new knowledge and progress in agroecology. Therefore, innovation is required to develop integrative approaches which bridge existing gaps, to integrate different forms of knowledge from a broad variety of stakeholders, to create new initiatives, and to formulate policy recommendations for new pathways towards sustainable agricultural and food systems.

The Forum also aims at the creation of an inclusive European community of professionals, practitioners, and more generally societal stakeholders interested in agroecology.

The Agroecology Europe Forum will be very interactive, combining different approaches and types of activities for stimulating discussions.

The Forum aims to attract different types of stakeholders from the three main components of agroecology: movement, science, and practice.

The programme will include a World Café, plenary and parallel sessions, panel discussions and workshops. Posters will be exhibited throughout the Forum in an open space aimed to facilitate networking among participants.

The conference is carried out in collaboration with the FertilCrop project.
