        The consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic being still on farmers’ shoulders, a war broke out at the doorstep of Europe, causing suffering for those territories as well as in the EU. In parallel, the climate emergency did not rest, continuing to affect our lives as much as the environment.

        The consequences of these crises on farmers, consumers, and society at large -toughen by inflation and sky-rocketing energy prices- call on the European agricultural sector to play a crucial role on all its fronts: climate, nutrition, and energy. In a context that is shaking, will the EU have the strength to stand strong and assure its role as a reliable partner in the global scene while paving the way forward for climate’s ambition ?

        The 6th edition of the Global Food Forum, titled ‘Climate, nutrition, energy: European Agriculture on all fronts’, will gather political and economic decision-makers and stakeholders to discuss, understand and crack possible solutions on the current issues that concern the Eu agricultural sector, its players, and consumers.
