Walking the Talk: Accelerating the transition to a sustainable food system and regenerative agriculture per the EU Farm-to-Fork Strategy

1626194018118 1

In this WEC Executive Roundtable series, we seek to create a space for bottom-up conversations on what the European Food & Agriculture sector explicitly needs to thrive. The aim of this 2nd event was for participants to collaborate and debate problem statements that could help inform businesses’ broader approach and scale initiatives.

Collective action is necessary to transition towards a truly abundant, regenerative, and equitable farming system that complies with the Paris Agreement, UN Sustainable Development Goals, and the goals that Europe has set for itself in the Green Deal by 2030. Several top-down global initiatives are coming together, such as the UN Food systems summit and Regenerative Acceleration and Change Engine (RACE) for Nature Positive Farming.
