2nd edition of Planet A - International Agriculture Forum
The Fondation pour l’innovation politique was once again a partner of the International Forum on Agriculture, Planet A, whose second edition took place on 27 and 28 June 2019 in Châlons-en-Champagne.
Since we live in an open world, the challenges facing world agriculture require global mobilisation. The Planet A collective was thus formed around the conviction that agriculture must bring about viable solutions, by making proposals at the State level and also that of organisations, by reinforcing constructive exchanges between actors concerned by agriculture, whatever their sector of activity (food, energy, transport, industry, construction, cosmetics, etc.) or their region (Europe, Africa, Asia, America, Australia).
From the outset, the Fondation pour l’innovation politique has been associated with Planet A. Initiator of the project, Benoist Apparu, Mayor of Châlons-en-Champagne, wanted us to contribute to the reflection and organisation of this real “hub” whose ambition is to accelerate the agricultural revolution by intensifying the transmission and sharing of knowledge.
During this event, plenary sessions led by experts, talks led by innovators from all over the world and various workshops helped define the major strategic issues and formulate innovative proposals on the theme of soil health, which this year was at the heart of all the debates.
This 2019 edition, attended by more than 350 participants of 30 different nationalities, represented the second successful edition of an initiative that is destined to continue over time, in the form of an annual international summit.
