The International Green Week in Berlin will not take place. The event was scheduled for January 21 – 30, 2022. Reason for the cancellation are the rising numbers of corona infections.
“The International Green Week thrives on people meeting each other and being able to sample, taste and discover things. Under the current circumstances, with face masks and physical distancing, we cannot fulfil the expectations of our visitors to the Green Week“, said Lars Jaeger, the project manager for the international event at Messe Berlin.
The Global Forum for Food and Agriculture which normally takes place during the Green Week, will be a virtual event. From 24 to 28 January 2022 at this virtual forum, around 2,000 participants representing politics, business, science and society will debate food and farming policy issues. The focus of the GFFA 2022 is on ’Sustainable farming: food security starts with the soil’.
Also the 15th Forum on the Future of Rural Development will commence via the online platform. The virtual event is scheduled to take place on 26 and 27 January 2022. The Federal Ministry of Agriculture will provide a virtual platform for exchanging views, discussion and exchanging knowledge on ’A strong honorary position – for a good rural life’.
