Agroecology Europe Forum 2023

November 16, 2023 @ 9:30 am - November 18, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

The 2023 Agroecology Europe Forum is a 3-day in-person event convening 200-300 people from all over Europe for dynamic and interactive dialogues around key European policy issues. Stakeholders and representatives of the agroecological community—farmers, growers, and ranchers, peasants, researchers, social movements, non-governmental organizations, and European policy makers—meet to discuss the most pressing challenges and present solutions for today’s agricultural and food systems.

By bringing together a variety of stakeholders from various movements and territories, we create synergies that set an exemplary model for facilitating the agroecological transition in Europe while acknowledging the global reach of the movement. Local solutions supported by targeted policies, tailored to diverse climatic, socio-economic, and cultural contexts can cultivate a climate-resilient, biodiverse Europe with environmental and social justice at its heart.

Converging movements for resilient food systems” means promoting dialogue between degrowth, agroecology, and climate and social justice movements, focusing on how each endeavour can strengthen and complement each other in completing different pieces of the puzzle of a regenerative future.

Co-organized by the Hungarian Agroecological Network Association in Gyöngyös, Hungary, this year’s Agroecology Europe Forum shines a light to the agroecological richness of the Central Eastern European region and creates stronger alliances between the different actors involved in the science, practice, and movement arms of agroecology in a more rural context.

The Hungarian Agroecology Network is a multistakeholder, transdisciplinary, and intergenerational network that aims to connect and strengthen those working with agroecology and serve as a meeting point, a knowledge-producing and -sharing community, and an advocacy organization. The long-term goal of the Network is to promote a national and international agroecological transformation of practices and policies and the implementation of food sovereignty through joint work and movement building, and to work together to create a socially, economically, and naturally sustainable agricultural production, processing, and distribution system in Hungary and beyond.

With a rich and inspiring agenda, the 2023 Forum will focus on:

  • Soil health and One Health
  • Strategic alliances, commonalities, and true inclusivity in agroecology
  • Challenges and opportunities for policy and local governance
  • Pathways for the transition to agroecological food systems combining technology and traditional knowledge
