The two-day conference featured leading thinkers and doers on the transformation of food and agriculture and a wide variety of workshops and excursions.

More and more farmers, consumers, scientists and civil society organisations are working towards sustainable and fair ways of producing food. They are forging new relationships between farmers and consumers. They offer creative, dynamic and diverse alternatives to large-scale, anonymous and industrialised food production and the increasing influence of transnational corporations.
