The virtual event was held on 28 January as part of a GME Webinar series with a special focus on the EU Green Deal. It scored with a
high-level set of speakers, including MEP Ulrike Müller, Moritz Böcking, Board Member of GME and Managing Director at
Klasmann-Deilmann, and Allan Buckwell, Research Director at the RISE Foundation, accompanied by Cecilia Luetgebrune, Secretary General of GME, and moderated by Chris Davies, Senior Advisor at Rud Pedersen.
Discussions explored the EU Farm-to-Fork Strategy ambitions, and how modern horticulture contributes to its most important objectives, such as:
- Food safety, security & nutrition, and quality
- Climate neutrality
- Efficient use of resources
- Restore biodiversity
The common denominator shared by the speakers was the need for innovative growing techniques to ensure efficient, sustainable and resilient food systems for all Europeans (the replay to the Webinar
