Connect – Inspire – Act!


In cooperation with Young Organics and the Ökolandbau Trainee Programme.

If you think about sustainability, what comes into your mind? Are there any issues that concern you and that you think haven´t received enough attention? Do you have any idea about how the food industry could become more sustainable? Are there any sustainable businesses ideas that you would like to put into practice? Do you feel like you haven’t yet found the right people that could help you implement them, or the resources to do so?

Use this platform, suggest your own topics for discussion and set the schedule for the first BioFach Camp 2012!

The topics will be selected through a simple online voting procedure. The winning proposals will be discussed in an open space format with other like-minded people at the BioFach Camp and sustainable solutions to be implemented will be developed!
