The event will provide opportunities to:
o Debate approaches, findings and lessons for policy and practice, and the spatially explicit interactive online tool to explore sustainability impacts of agro-ecological farming systems;
o Contribute to an evolving debate of the role of agroecology in sustainable farming and food systems in Europe, and of effective policy support;
o Network with key stakeholders, researchers and other interested parties.

Project results are intended to contribute to the implementation of the EU Farm to Fork Strategy, Biodiversity Strategy for 2030, the preparations of the European R&I partnership on agroecology living labs and research infrastructures, and the national CAP Strategic Plans.

The target audience of this conference is farming organisations and stakeholders across the value chain, the European Commission and EU and national public authorities, international organisations, NGOs and civil society organisations, knowledge and innovation networks and brokers, and researchers.
