European Farm Succession Conference

Brussels, BE

On the 7th and 8th of November, practitioners, farmers and policy-makers will meet to share tools and experiences and explore future collaborations on farm succession in Europe.

Though Farm Succession seems to have little to do with the daily lives of most of us, nothing is less true. Farm Succession is at the centre of our food sovereignty as it is key for farm continuity. Today we can no longer ignore the truth. The average age of our European farmers is 55 years and only 6% of the farmers are younger than 35 years. A key issue now is to facilitate the entry into farming of newcomers, who start a farm outside of intra-family farm succession.

Two years ago 5 European organisations - CIVAM, Interafocg, Terre-en-vue, NeL and Landgilde - decided to gather forces and centralise successful tools for facilitating farm succession: the farm succession toolkit.

On the 7th and 8th of November the toolkit will be presented during The European Farm Succession Conference at the Royal Library in Brussels. Workshops will be organised in order to gather forces and develop a future strategy to tackle the issue of farm succession in Europe. Facilitators, policy makers, farmers and all others who feel concerned are welcome.

Places are limited to 100. There will be simultaneous translation to French and German.
