Forum for the Future of Agriculture is held in Brussels.

Forum for the Future of Agriculture

Every spring (since 2007) the annual conference of the Forum for the Future of Agriculture is held in Brussels.

The objective of the FFA is to stimulate open discussions on the future of European and global agriculture and to assess what should and what can be achieved over time, giving equal weight to two challenges: food security and environmental security.

However, due to events related to the coronavirus, this FFA meeting will be held through a webinar.

It seems that it will focus on the consequences that the COVID-19 crisis has created on all facets of the food system; from empty supermarket shelves to a shortage of farm workers and previously open borders are now closed.

The FFA claims that the pandemic has exposed systemic weaknesses that have not only been eliminated and repaired, but completely resolved to build resilience.

In turn, there is an urgency to develop an agrarian policy that not only guarantees recovery, but also this resistant and ecological sea.

Conclusion

From the CONSOLE project we believe that the FFA has opened up a possibility for all of society to participate in this outstanding Forum thanks to the use of new technologies.
