The RENN.mitte Network (German Regional Network Centres for Sustainability Strategies) invites you to the [4th] annual conference of RENN.mitte! What new paths do we have to take today in order to live well together tomorrow? This question is highly explosive, because it relates directly to the planetary boundaries, which have already been exceeded at many points. Scientists have therefore been calling for a Great Transformation for years.

In order to transform the current food system into an environmentally friendly, sustainable system, it requires the increasing implementation of sustainable niche innovations in Europe. Therefore, the Food System Change Online Congress aims at facilitating and promoting the exchange between diverse European niche pioneers in the food system. Next to the niche pioneers themselves, also representatives from associations and federations from the environmental and nature protection sector as well as scientists, food processors, farmers, companies, foundations, journalists and citizens from all over Europe are invited to participate.
How our food is produced is of interest not only to the Commission for the Future of Agriculture, but to all of us. Agriculture produces our food, agriculture shapes the landscape, agriculture influences the environment and is dependent on the environment. It is in these contexts, which affect society as a whole, that the Commission on the Future of Agriculture (Zukunftskommission Landwirtschaft - ZKL) operates, which is working out recommendations for a sustainable agricultural system on behalf of the German government.
At the Zukunftsgespräch, the Commission, chaired by Prof. Dr. Peter Strohschneider, will present its working methods and take up impulses from participants. The members of the Future Commission from the fields of agriculture, business, consumer protection, environmental protection and animal welfare will present perspectives for a sustainable agricultural system.
STADTLANDBIO will take place digital in 2021. As in previous years, the congress will be held parallel to BIOFACH and VIVANESS, which will also take place digital in 2021 as eSPECIAL. Look forward to the digital platform for exchange, information and networking.
The EU's Farm to Fork Strategy stands for a sustainable EU agricultural system that can create "greener and healthier" food. It also aims to increase the share of organic farming in the EU to 30% by 2050. What opportunities do the EU's farm-to-fork and food strategies offer for cities, municipalities and regions? How can the EU level and the municipal/regional level be interlinked? What options do municipalities and regions have for action? What benefits do they offer? These and other exciting questions will be discussed at the STADTLANDBIO 2021 DIGITAL congress.
