But what is this young group of organic minds, hearts and hands concretly doing? Not only have we launched our first pilot urban garden in Bonn, fought rabbits, slugs and rain, and got our bodies in the mud,Ā  we also met at several occasions to discuss openly about how we can achieve our mission and would be the first steps to take to achieve a more sustainable, organic and fair world. For 2011/2012, Young Organics set up 5 priorities:

  • Offering gardening training to companies and organizations, which employees are disconnected from organic agriculture, as well as helping and facilitating the launch of local Young Organics groups and urban gardens in Germany and neighboring countries;
  • Bulding the platform to connect young minds and hearts, both physically and on the web, share experiences, and showcase best projects (Young Organics Awards);
  • Developing positions and papers towards policy makers. Young Organics will contribute a workshop to the United Nations DPI/NGO Conference, which outcome is a declaration that will be taken into account on the agenda of RIO+20, the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. We hope to be able to influence policy makers at the highest level to promote organic and fair agriculture and lifestyles;
  • Actively participating to conferences and events to spread the word on organic, fair and sustainable lifestyles, as well as networking with the decision makers;
  • Getting in dialogue with pioneers of the organic and fairtrade movement to define our own vision of sustainability.
