While in Europe the debate continues about whether agroecology should incorporate other knowledges and cultures at the same level as science, thousands of people at the recent IV National Agroecology Encounter (ENA) in Brazil strongly affirmed that agroecology is a united struggle.
Between April 3 and 5, the second International Agroecology Symposium was held in Rome. “Scaling Up agroecology to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)” was the theme of the meeting. Various members of Agroecology Europe were among the 800 people present at the symposium.
The vice-president of Agroecology Europe, Alexander Wezel, had the chance to speak about agroecology at ISARA with Prince Charles on 8th May, and inform about Agroecology Europe. Prince Charles of the British Royal Family is a strong supporter of Organic Agriculture.
From the 10 to 14 september in Vienna, Austria “Ecology meeting the scientific challenges of a complex world”
