10th International Congress of Agroecology

2 - 6 September 2024
Polytechnic Institute of Viseu (IPV), Portugal

Since its first edition in 2006, the International Congress of Agroecology has been held in Spain (Vigo, Cordoba and Seville). The focus of this Congress is the sharing of agroecological experiences and collective responses to challenge the dominance of large markets and agribusiness. With the vision that agroecology is a collective endeavour and that its leading role must be given back to people and communities, the Congress involves actors from the social, agricultural, technical, scientific and academic sectors, as well as politicians and social movements.

The X International Congress of Agroecology will take place for the first time in Portugal, at the Polytechnic Institute of Viseu (IPV), from September 2-6, 2024. It aims to facilitate the exchange of agroecological experiences between Africa, Latin America, and Europe. The Congress has three main goals:

  1. Contribute to the production, consolidation and sharing of agroecological knowledge and experiences, and promoting the transition to sustainable food systems through debate and consensus on the common elements between the world’s agroecologies;
  2. Continue the process of configuring agroecological strategies as integral responses (technological, socioeconomic and environmental) for a resilient food system, with the capacity to respond to the challenges of climate change, poverty and socioeconomic polarization; and
  3. Give visibility to agroecologies from the Global South to the North.
