Cultivate the future is the title of the 16th IFOAM Organic World Congress, because we believe that the contribution made by Organic Agriculture is fundamental for guaranteeing generations to come with a healthy, fair, correct environment for harmonious living that respects people and the earth. The Modena area boasts centuries old agro-food tradition that is a benchmark for world food and wine, and the development and growth of organic agriculture plays a central role, from both an economic point of view and also in preservation of the land itself.
The 16th IFOAM Organic World Congress is based on the IFOAM Principles of Organic Agriculture: Health, Ecology, Fairness and Care. Arising from these core values, the central themes of the Congress pertain to:
* regional values and indigenous knowledge, or more precisely the roots from which we should draw experience and inspiration in our everyday actions;
* innovation, in all fields, to better project ourselves into a sustainable future;
* cooperation between producers and consumers, public and private bodies, scientists and operators, South and North, and communities, regions and nations.
