We are glad to invite you to the launch of our new publication “The principles of agroecology: towards just, resilient and sustainable food systems” in Rome on the 3rd of April. It will be the opportunity for us to present the content and to seek feedback from various stakeholders (social movements/civil society, policy makers and academia) on what is needed to foster dialogue within the broader agroecology movement, to support agroecological transition processes and the spread of agroecology, and to identify ways in which such work (among others) could be used to meet those needs. More information about the program will be shared in due time.
We hope that your presence in Rome at that time of the year will be facilitated by your participation to the 2nd FAO International Symposium on Agroecology (which will take place at FAO from the 3rd to 5th of April).

From 7.15 pm to 8.00 pm: light buffet and drinks served
