This year the European Diversity Cereal Festival, organised within the framework of the EU CERERE project, is bringing together two different type of events, already organised in the past years. The event Let's Cultivate Diversity on cereal diversity has been held three times during the past 10 years: France in 2009, Italy in 2013 and Belgium in 2017. The Nordic Heritage Cereal Meetings have been organised since 2008 in different Nordic countries. This will be the 11th meeting held in Denmark 26-28th June 2019.

 

The Festival organizers are:

 

CERERE

Cerere is a thematic network that brings scientists and practitioners together. It aims are to raise awareness about the value of good food, to identify cereal supply chains which use low inputs, to empower farmers and those actors who work with alternative food systems.

 

Nordic Heritage Cereal network

The network aims to strength the Nordic network between professionals and scientists and practitioners in cereal breeding, growing, including milling, baking and other processing methods.

 

European Coordination Let's Cultivate Diversity

The European Coordination for Let's Liberate Diversity! (EC-LLD) is an European non-profit organization created in 2012 with the objective to encourage, develop and promote the dynamic management of biodiversity on farms and in gardens. EC-LLD draws its origins and inspiration from the annual gatherings of the European movement on agricultural biodiversity known as the Let's Liberate Diversity! Forums.
