The IFOAM Organic World Congress is organised every 3 years in a different country.
The aim of the congress and surrounding activities (pre-conference, IFOAM General Assembly, side-events and organic exhibition) is to share experiences, innovations, knowledge about the organic world with a special attention on the organizing country. The Congress provides an extraordinary momentum and inspiration for all stakeholders from around the world that are proud to be part.
In 2014 the Organic World Congress took place 13 t0 15 October in Istanbul, Turkey, and SOLID was engaged in a range of different activities.
