18.09.2020 | Cancelled – Future of EU crop protection

This event has now been cancelled due to Covid-19 regulations.

The RISE Foundation invites you to attend the upcoming debate on its new report on 18 September 2020 in Brussels, Belgium.

The report explores the future of European crop protection. The use of pesticides has become a totemic issue in the debate about the acceptability of the current predominant system of agriculture. Relieving tensions between gains in agricultural productivity and growing demand, on one hand, and the resulting environmental costs and concerns for health, on the other, requires long-term solutions for more sustainable crop protection.

In its latest report the RISE Foundation reviews crop protection methods, and the policy that guides and regulates them, and proposes the way forward for the European Union.

Join the RISE Chairman Janez Potocnik and a group of panellists in debating the future of EU crop protection.
