With the support of
We are an international nonprofit organization dedicated to the dynamic management of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture.
Our core belief is that the diversification of our food systems can be achieved through the collaborative efforts of various stakeholders involved in cultivated biodiversity.
The Coordination boasts a robust network of 20 members with a network of 170 national organizations operating across 19 European countries with a membership base exceeding 35,000. In collaboration with approximately 15,000 farmers, we actively engage in the conservation and management of around 40,000 plant varieties.
- After 15 years of cooperation among different partners from different countries, we learned that it is crucial to have a platform promoting exchanges and sharing of experiences/point of views/policies among its members to foster local actions.
- We apply a peer-to-peer approach to training and knowledge sharing. It means facilitating a horizontal way of disseminating knowledge among different actors bearing different knowledge, overcoming the usual top-down approach. Today it could be coined with the word Living Lab.
What to expect at the Let’s Liberate Diversity! Forums:
- Farmers, researchers and national and international experts take turns holding seminars and meetings sharing innovation and practices.
- Exhibitions but also real local markets to expose the cultivated biodiversity
- Exchange of seeds and varieties among farmers, allowing a “contamination” of varieties in the territories ensuring genetic diversity.
- Involvement of citizens in meetings, workshops and laboratories on agriculture and food issues
- From the 26th to the 28th of October 2023
- Doors will be open from 3pm on Thursday 26th
