                      Affiche GFF 2018The 2018 Global Food Forum will take place on the 17-18 September 2018, focusing on “Can EU agri-food systems be again the beating heart of the European Union ?. Discussions will take place in a typical farmhouse in the heart of Lombardy countryside, close to Pavia (Italy). 

                      The  Forum will start on Monday, 17th of September at 12h30 with an informal lunch among participants allowing an initial round of exchanges. The afternoon plenary session and roundtable will focus on strategies and policies to reposition agri-food systems as the beating heart for the future of the European Union and the European citizens.
                       
                      On Tuesday, 18th, discussions among participants will be developed throughouts the 5 World-café workshops held in parallel, assessing the best ways and means to achieve this goals through Double Performance, Innovation, Sustainability, high level of Resilience and… effective and efficient policies.

                      Since 2016, the Global Food Forum has involved each year  key political and economic decision makers across the European Union in a participatory process, more needed than ever to unfreeze the debate at EU level and set up the foundations of a renewed ambition of EU policies having an impact on agri-food systems. Held in North Italy, the GFF gathers under the Chatham house rules a limited number of economic and decision makers taking stock willing to design the future of the EU agri-food systems and related EU policies. Each year, the conclusions and recommandations of the Forum are presented in Brussels at the European Parliament.
