9th International Congress of Agroecology

Raising local agroecology-based food systems

The Agroecosystems History Laboratory of Pablo de Olivine University together with the think tank Alimentta announced the IX International Congress of Agroecology. The congress will take place in Seville (Spain) on 19, 20 and 21 January 2023 and focus on Agroecology-Based Local Food Systems. 

In recent years, both social innovation experiences and discussions on how to scale Agroecology-Based Local Food Systems have proliferated, but there are still many issues to be resolved regarding the process of implementation. Precisely for this reason, this congress seeks to generate a space for exchange and collective debate that serves to monitor the progress of the agroecological transition and, more specifically, of the Agroecology-Based Local Food Systems.

Call for papers: The deadline for the presentation of communication proposals is open, as experiences or scientific contributions. Those interested in participating should send to agroecologia2023@upo.es a proposal of roundtable, panel or individual communication with an extension of up to 500 words long (in Spanish, Portuguese or English), including the title, authorship and abstract.

Submission will be open from the publication of this circular until April 30, 2022. The proposals will be evaluated by the scientific committee of the congress during the following two months. Acceptance of the proposed communications, roundtables and panels, and the selected modality of presentation, whether oral or poster, will be communicated at the beginning of July.
