Presentation of the Seed Policy Labs. The“Seed Policy Labs”are a bottom-up capacity building project financed by Pro Specie Rara for the European Coordination Let’s Liberate Diversity! in order to increase knowledge of the European crop biodiversity movement in policy issues. The Labs will consist of different training modules, the content of which is guided by the needs of the associations themselves. Virtual interviews have to this end been carried out with 18 organisations, resulting in specific needs assessment and a general gap analysis compiling different needs and requests. Open to associations that have taken part in the interviews and that will receive the training, this particular webinar within LLD On Air willpresent theanonymisedresults of the interviews,andlist the training modules that have been identifiedas a result. Participantswill have the opportunity todiscuss thespecific contentof the different modules, collectively guide their prioritisationandtheir future schedule.

In this workshop you will be able to test the Seed House Canvas (adapted social business model canvas) as a tool for strategic planning and development of Community Seed Banks.We are working on a catalogue which will show 10 different CSB-Modelsin Europe.The catalogue will consist of theSeed House Canvas & the organisational structure of each CSB and enable people who want to start a CSB to gain an overview of the different possibilities, strategies, theadvantages and the difficulties of the different CSB-models. At this first public presentation, we will be very glad to receive feedback at the workshop on the design and practicability of the Canvas. We are also inviting participants to become part in the project and share their CSB-Model with other people on a similar path.
