Financing transition - how can farmers achieve climate neutrality?
Following up in the series of seminars that will set forward the liberal vision on the future of agriculture, next topic that Renew Europe will tackle is the financial aspect of the transition to more sustainable agriculture and food system.
The EU agriculture and food system is a frontrunner in climate change adaptation and mitigation and the EU sets its ambition very high to become an example to other countries. The farmers are the key to achieving climate neutrality however they need to have a financial backing from private and public sources that would allow them to fully implement their visions and innovations.
RENEW EUROPE MEPs Ulrike Müller, Martin Hlaváček, and Jérémy Decerle, together with our invited experts in the field of agriculture finances, will thoroughly investigate different financing mechanisms in our seminar, and we invite you to join us.
