Balance for the future. Why food systems need balance and what does it really mean?

The agri-food sector is largely linked to many of the challenges that our planet is facing today. The innovation enabling all people to be involved is essential to a safe and sustainable agrifood system, which will benefit everyone. How to do that and how to find a balance for a better future for our food? 

Join us in this amazing discussion on the 1st of December in Vilnius and online during the event summarizing the 4th edition of the Empowering Women in Agrifood programme.
