The fifth World Organic Forum will be held at Kirchberg Castle from June 27 to 30, 2022. The focus will be on the local implementation of the UN Agenda 2030 with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Prominent guests such as Vandana Shiva, winner of the Alternative Nobel Prize, and Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, environmental scientist and former co-president of the Club of Rome, will provide information on these topics and identify solutions.
The following specific points will be addressed: How can the 17 goals be successfully implemented in rural regions through a bottom-up movement? What building blocks do the SDGs offer for regional planning and how is that measured? What are the opportunities and added values of organic agriculture for implementing the SDGs in regions of the world? How does the German government's international development cooperation take up the practical localization of the 2030 Agenda? And what potential do communities of strong women, regenerative agrarian culture and new approaches to climate-friendly agriculture offer for anchoring the SDGs in everyday life on the ground?
During key notes, panel discussions and in interactive workshops, a common exchange of knowledge and experiences will take place. The aim of the World Organic Forum is to promote the local anchoring of the Sustainable Development Goals in a practice-oriented way. In particular, the forces of the worldwide networks of organic agriculture and the organic movement are to be bundled. The Forum will start with a preview of the film “Agrarwende Jetzt! Und es geht doch…” Other hightlights will be the events around the celebration of 50 years of IFOAM – Organics International. You can find the full program here.
