owcISOFAR organizes the scientific track of the OWC in India, November 2017. About 150 scientists from more than 50 countries will contribute, and ISOFAR will repeat its successful poster competition. Please join the poster jury, and propose for a membership of the ISOFAR world board at the General Assembly!

The organic world congress (OWC) of IFOAM is the largest happening within the organic community. Every three years, countries all over the world compete to be the host of the next OWC. In Istanbul in 2014, India won to arrange the 19th OWC, on November 9-11, 2017.

Many members and supporters of ISOFAR will go to New Delhi for the general assembly of our association on November 8, to participate in the scientific track arranged by ISOFAR, TIPI and the National Centre of Organic Farming (India), to join into plenary sessions and other events and not least, to see some real Indian organic agriculture.

We encourage all ISOFAR members to participate in the general assembly. Being only for members, it will not be announced on the website of the OWC as a pre-conference, but information will be found here.

The general assembly is important to discuss the strategy for ISOFAR the coming three years, and not least to elect the new world board and the next ISOFAR president. Here you find the form form to be filled to propose yourself as a member of the ISOFAR world board, which has up to 12 members. Such a proposal is mandatory, also for current board members. With board member Raffaele Zanoli, former general secretary of ISOFAR Daniel Neuhoff will kindly administrate the elections.

As in 2014, the five best posters presented at the scientific track of the OWC will receive a diploma, 1000 Euro and positive attention during the last evening celebration party. ISOFAR board member Ewa RembiaƂkowska is responsible for organizing a broad jury to evaluate the posters.
