Welcome to a seminar about the future of organic farming in Sweden starting with a lecture by Niels Halberg director of ICROFS (International Centre for Research on Organic Food Systems) in Denmark. He will present a Danish knowledge synthesis from 2015 on the contribution of organic agriculture to public goods and on the potential and limitations for stronger contribution to future challenges in our food systems.

With the lecture by Niels Halberg as starting-point the discussion continues with contribution from researchers at SLU.

  • How do I see the future for organic production?
  • What are the main challenges for sustainable organic production?
  • How can research contribute to increased sustainability in organic food and farming systems?
