EurSafe is an independent organisation, which provides a focal point for those who have a professional interest in the ethical issues involved in agriculture and food supply. The Society, founded in 1999, is an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural and non-partisan organisation.
EurSafe aims to encourage academic education and research, and international debate on the ethical issues involved in agriculture and food supply.
Societies need to adjust to environmental change and to new living conditions in the age of climate change and environmental degradation. Instead of mourning the loss of traditional life-styles, this workshop explores forward-looking proposals to redefine the interface of society and nature. The concept of 'Greentopia' serves as an umbrella term for innovative proposals that provide ideas and concepts for an eco-friendly social life with nature.
