GMO-free Regions Conference 2007
The 3rd International Conference on GMO-Free Regions, Biodiversity and Rural Development will bring together representatives from GMO free regional governments and municipalities, from farmers, consumers, environmental and other organisations active in the field of GMO-free agriculture and the self-determination of regions.
This year's conference will focus on three major topics:
- The state of national, regional and EU legislation on approvals, risks, liabilities and the eventual co-existence of GMO and GMO free agriculture and horticulture.
- The erosion of biodiversity, independent farming, and regional quality food production arising from the exclusive control of seed by fewer and fewer companies.
- The challenges for rural development, biodiversity, food culture and food security arising from the global competition between food and fuel production.
Location: Brussels, Belgium
