Informative and interactive - participatory conference of the Ravensburg biosample region

Under the theme "Healthy agriculture - healthy earth - healthy life: Dialogue for all", the second participatory conference took place in the Ravensburg district on March 20, 2022. Participatory conference, i.e. actively shaping and talking to each other. For the first time, the event took place mainly online. All participants were therefore curious to see how a lively and interactive idea could be transferred to an online event.

The answer: it works! The team of Wirundjetzt e.V. [link in german] and the Biomusterregion Ravensburg [link in german] put in a lot of effort with various media (with a special highlight of the 3D event rooms) and so a joyful and open exchange took place about all kinds of ideas and potentials around organic farming, sustainability, regional development and nutrition.

Particularly noteworthy here are the "topic tables", at which a wide variety of projects and ideas could be discussed in small groups. The IfLS was represented by Holger Pabst together with Dietlinde Quack from the Öko-Institut with the GOBIOM project, which deals with biodiversity and economy in milk production. Together with the participants, conflicts and approaches to solutions as well as possibilities and visions were discussed. The many good ideas are now to be incorporated into the project through exchange with other projects.

We thank all participants for the great event and look forward to the next participatory conference!

For the GOBIOM project, we are currently looking for interested practical partners who want to jointly promote biodiversity and economic sustainability in dairy production. Are you interested? Then please contact us at:
