Climate Change Mitigation, Organic Agriculture and Human Health: Status Quo and New Data

It is well known that climate change and its manifestations impact societal sectors, such as agriculture, food, and health. Actions focused on climate change mitigation at the local and regional level are of utmost importance for the Mediterranean region. Mediterranean-based projects, such as the ORGANIKO LIFE+, among others, demonstrate the need for revamping organic agriculture and its products in the context of climate change mitigation strategies. At the same time, organic market is growing within the food sector of the EU, while the possible benefits of a systematic organic diet on human health have yet to be documented.

This event will showcase the findings of the ORGANIKO LIFE+ project in the pillars of climate change mitigation and human health. Further, it will highlight the policy impact of the above initiatives at the EU level.

You are kindly invited to attend to the event «Climate Change Mitigation, Organic Agriculture and Human Health: Status Quo and New Data» that is taking place on Wednesday, 23 May 2018 at the European Parliament, Brussels.
