Organic 1.0 was started by our numerous pioneers, who observed the problems with the direction that agriculture was taking at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century and saw the need for a radical change.
Organic 2.0 started in the 1970s when the writings and agricultural systems developed by our pioneers were codified into standards and then later into legally-mandated regulatory systems.
Organic 3.0 is about bringing organic out of its current niche into the mainstream and positioning organic systems as part of the multiple solutions needed to solve the tremendous challenges faced by our planet and our species.
The Future Policy Awards celebrate policies that create better living conditions for current and future generations. Each year, the awards identify one topic on which policy progress is particularly urgent to raise global awareness for exemplary policies and speed up policy action. This year, the theme is agroecology. Scaling up agroecology is key to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. World Leaders and the UN General Assembly recognise the potential of agroecology to achieve healthy nutrition for all and to address social injustice, climate change and biodiversity loss
