The Forum for the Future of Agriculture (ForumforAg) is the premiere meeting place in Brussels to debate sustainable agriculture and environmental challenges. The Forum is where agriculture and environment meet for an open dialogue at our Annual Conference and other events throughout the year.
Save the date for our next Annual Conference.
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.
