About the Forum for the Future of Agriculture

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.

First annual Call to Action progress report published

Just over a year ago, the Forum launched its Call to Action – a series of seven commitments designed to help contribute to a more resilient, sustainable, nature positive and climate smart food and agriculture system. The Forum for the Future of Agriculture has now launched the first annual report which sets out the work we have undertaken and progress made, along with illustrations of the scalable initiatives that many of our partners are doing, towards these Call to Action commitments.

About the Forum for the Future of Agriculture partners

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.
