The TPP Agroecology is hosting an online event on Research on Agroecology: Current Strengths and Innovative Futures for Sustainable Food Systems. The topic of agroecological transformation of agrifood systems and its link to the SDGs was one of the main themes at this year’s UN World Food Systems Summit in New York. It is evident that such a change is urgently needed.
The event will take place online on October 27 at 12:00-14:00 UTC (14:00-16:00 CEST) and is free and open to everyone.
