Agroecology Europe intends to place agroecology high on the European agenda of sustainable farming and food systems.

We foster interaction and knowledge sharing to create an inclusive European community of professionals, practitioners, and societal stakeholders in agroecology.


Through a consultative process among its members, Agroecology Europe has developed its position on a number of crucial and challenging issues in the agricultural and food sectors.

The process started in 2017 during the 1st Agroecology Europe Forum held in Lyon (France) and was finalised after the 2nd Agroecology Europe Forum held in Heraklion (Greece) in September 2019.

The list is non exhaustive and could be further developed but those were considered as the most important ones.
