In September 2021, WeMove Europe gGmbH organised two public webinars to connect with its community from across Europe and, together, learn about the power and potential of regenerative agriculture. One took place in English, the other one in German. The goal of these webinars was educational, trying to answer the questions we regularly receive from our members: what does good farming look like nowadays ? What’s the problem with agriculture right now? What has to change? What do farmers say? What would be the alternative to the Common Agricultural Policy? WeMove decided to Inform and engage our community that cares about environmental issues and agriculture.

In the audience, participants could gather online with three experts in agriculture, first listening to them, and then engaging into a conversation, directly voicing their questions and concerns. The experts have been invited to talk about alternative sustainable farming systems. They represented Climate Farmers, the European Agroforestry Federation, and the International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems (IPES-Food). Their experience demonstrated that it is possible to restore fertility to our soils, save animals from extinction and fight climate change. The solutions are out there and many people are already working on them.

The webinars have been attended live by 350 German members and 150 International English members. Afterwards, we also counted more than 3090 views of recording on Youtube in German, and more than 730 views in English. These webinars allowed to spread awareness about the potential of agroforestry at the European level.
