Gene-editing technology in agriculture is extending beyond the usual plant species into a variety of different farm animals. Biotechnologists say that it can help improve animal welfare and that gene-editing […]
The arguments over the acceptability of the new genetic engineering techniques are mainly conducted around political/economic risks and impacts and not around ethical or life values. And yet there are […]
The debate in Europe over the application of new genetic engineering techniques, and specifically gene editing techniques such as CRISPR, is intensifying. The research establishment, several Member States and parts […]
Genome editing is a profoundly transformative technology. It is being pushed by the research establishment, government, media and industry as the smart way to achieve sustainability. The agroecological/organic movement has been […]
Organic agriculture’s approach to food production is built on a concept of health. This session will explore if this concept is a valid way of assessing different approaches to plant […]

UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. A NEW DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN DUE COURSE. The use of genetic modification in food and farming has long […]
Join specialists from farming, campaigning, science, business and media for an in-depth discussion about whether gene editing is not just desirable but necessary if farming is to reach its goals higher sustainability and better welfare.
Support for new genetic engineering technologies is quietly growing, even amongst groups claiming to be ‘for’ sustainability, agroecology and even organic. This is happening largely behind closed doors and without […]
