Round-table discussion on EU Seed marketing reform

Round-table discussion on EU Seed marketing reform

This workshop is designed to provide a platform for in-depth discussions on the EU proposal for the conservation and dynamic management of plant genetic diversity. The objective of the workshop is to facilitate an examination of the proposal’s potential impacts, with a focus on various stakeholders in the seed, organic and biodiversity sectors. Through introductory statements, moderated discussions, and Q&A sessions, participants will delve into the implications of the proposal and explore key priorities for their respective organizations. The workshop aims to foster a multi-perspective dialogue on the proposed changes. Participants will also explore strategies to influence the proposal and contribute to its development.

Agrobiodiversity for rural regeneration. Case study: supporting the emergence of a social cooperative for Irish-grown textiles

Agrobiodiversity for rural regeneration. Case study: supporting the emergence of a social cooperative for Irish-grown textiles

As part of its work to promote the dynamic and sustainable management of agrobiodiversity, Seeds4All is committed to facilitate cooperations between the rural innovative players met across Europe.

In march 2023, project coordinator Adèle Pautrat travelled to Ireland to meet local organisations relying on agrobiodiversity to reintroduce traditional savoir faire related to textile production, and revive local economies from a sustainable perspective.

These partners are the Irish Seed Savers association, Apple Oak Fibre Works, FibreShed Ireland, the Hemp and Flax cooperative of Ireland, Shamrock Spring and the Mallon Linen Farm.

Together, they will discuss the challenges and opportunities involved in producing fibres from hemp, flax, wool, dye plants, etc., and brainstorm, with the help of participants, on the idea of creating a social cooperative for Irish-grown textiles, from seed to fibre.
