The Forum for the Future of Agriculture (ForumforAg) is the premiere meeting place in Brussels to debate sustainable agriculture and environmental challenges, and one of the leading international forums committed to help building a more resilient, sustainable, climate-smart and nature positive food and agriculture system.
Established in 2008, the Forum is where agriculture and environment meet for an open dialogue at our Annual Conference and other events throughout the year. To achieve this goal, the Forum and its partners announced a ‘Call to Action’ in March 2023 which included a series of commitments, to support the transformation of the agri-food system in Europe and beyond.
The Forum for the Future of Agriculture have announced the establishment of a new Advisory Council to support it in the achievement of its mission to help build a more resilient, sustainable, climate smart and nature positive food and agriculture system.
The Forum has published a new report on making and sustaining the transition to a more resilient, sustainable, climate smart and nature positive food and agriculture system.
The report is now available to read in English.
The Forum has published its first ‘Perceptions & Insights Report’ on developing and scaling Regenerative Agriculture in Europe and beyond. Drawing on stakeholder workshops and interviews, we explored the meaning, costs and benefits of RegenAg as well as the barriers and enablers.
On Tuesday, March 28, we held our 2023 Annual Conference in Brussels where the Forum also announced its Call to Action in the presence of many stakeholders from across Europe and further afield.

We regularly release new episodes of ForumforAg Food Systems podcast where we interview politicians, civil society representatives, thought leaders, scientists, activists, farmers, business leaders and many others with ideas and actions on how we can deliver a safe, plentiful, and above all sustainable food system that works for everyone.

The European Landowners’ Organization and Syngenta came together in 2008 to create a new, open and inclusive place in Europe where all stakeholders interested in contributing to a more sustainable agriculture system could come together to debate and share knowledge and expertise on how this could be achieved. They remain committed to that goal and have now invited other organisations to join and help take forward the Forum for the Future of Agriculture on the next phase of its journey.
Our strategic partners support the mission of the forum to contribute to the development of a more sustainable food and agriculture system. In doing so, they work together with our founding partners under the guidance of the chairman to enable the strategic development of the Forum for the Future of Agriculture and help to shape its annual work program.
The ForumforAg partners also act as a sounding board and provide counsel on our thought leadership activities and positions. The partners also exchange knowledge and expertise on what works on the ground, as well as constructively challenging each other, as well as other stakeholders in their community, to help create a more sustainable food system.
