Agroecology Boosted at Pioneering Meeting

BRAZIL - We have reached a landmark moment for the global recognition of ‘agroecology’ as a solution to the global food and climate crisis, according to Friends of the Earth International.

A key gathering on agroecology, a farming method based on ecological balance and social justice, most recently welcomed by Pope Francis, will take place in Brasilia on June 24-27.

Last week, the Pontiff wrote in his 'Encyclical' that we must embrace ecological farming to feed the world and improve well-being - rather than relying on industrial agriculture and pesticides.
