International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements IFOAM united people globally for the purpose of promoting organic agriculture. It helped farmers adopt environmentally, socially and economically responsible agricultural systems. Organic farmers ensure long-term health of the land and help in providing consumers food free of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.
The IFOAM Organic World Congress was the world’s largest and most significant organic gathering organized every 3 years in a different country, attended by more than 2500 people from the organic sector worldwide. The objective of the congress was to discuss the strategy and roadmap of organic agriculture and to share experiences, innovations and knowledge about the organic world.
Natural Habitat is proud to be the member of this prestigious congress this year, it provided us the opportunity to network and learn about the most recent technologies, production techniques and marketing methods. This event was an inspiration for all stakeholders to contribute to the development of the organic sector worldwide. This was the time and place, where the leaders and opinion makers of the organic world talked about the new strategies, innovative solutions and groundbreaking researches in more than 250 presentations.
A special attention was been given to the organizing country, Istanbul has been the crossroad between the East and the West for many hundred years hence the theme this year “Building Organic Bridges” had a special significance. The association aimed to increase awareness of organic farming in Turkey and to guide people, institutions and other related organizations to cooperate during the preparations of the congress.
Organic World Congress was also the platform to elect IFOAM World Board by the General Assembly for the tenure of next 3 years. Over 600 organizations use their democratic rights and elect the World Board, a strategic guidance was also provided to the board on appointing official committees, working groups and task forces. The General Assembly is a dynamic gathering that motivates board and staff to continue working towards the realization of IFOAM’s vision.
The congress lasted 3 days and was made up of 3 plenary and 8 breakout sessions within 3 tracks (Main, Scientific and Practitioners) and workshops.
