WELCOME TO THE
V. WORLD ORGANIC FORUM
Stiftung Haus der Bauern – Akademie Schloss Kirchberg
The V. World Organic Forum focused on the local implementation of the UN Agenda 2030 with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
This year's conference took place at Schloss Kirchberg (Kirchberg Castle) from June 27 to 30, 2022. It brought together more than 150 people from over 15 different countries. More followed the livestream.
The forum is an impulse-giving place for building a global network of SDG regions, in the North as well as in the South, in which the 17 Sustainable Development Goals are implemented and filled with life!
Together, we want to advance the local anchoring of the SDGs in a practice-oriented way. In doing so, we will especially join forces with the global networks of organic agriculture and the organic movement.
Thus, it is a special pleasure that our partner IFOAM - Organics International made the 2022 celebrations of the organization's 50th anniversary also part of the V. World Organic Forum!
How can the 17 goals be successfully implemented in rural areas through a bottom-up movement? What building blocks do the SDGs provide for regional planning and how do we measure this? What are the opportunities and added values of organic agriculture for implementing the SDGs in regions around the world? How does the German government's international development cooperation take up the practical localization of the 2030 Agenda?
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?
We discussed and worked on these and many other questions together with highly renowned experts and protagonists of change from global civil society, science and politics as well as farmers from regions around the world and all interested people. We learned about best practices, developed new approaches and inspired each other to bring the UN 2030 Agenda to the ground!
We would like to thank everyone who made the V. World Organic Forum such an inspiring event and look forward to welcoming you next year to the next World Organic Forum at Kirchberg Castle!
