Mar 15, 2022 | News | 0 comments

Following our commitment to serve as a space of trust in which to debate the issues that most affect the sector, the Ethical Trade Forums have prepared a conference on water management and the problems derived from its use in the area surrounding the Doñana National Park.

It will be a semi-face-to-face event, which will take place in Huelva on 16 March and will also be streamed and hosted on our website, so that interested members of the Ethical Trade Forums can later watch it online.

We aim to bring together different groups of interest and offer a global vision of the issue, establishing a dialogue focused on finding solutions.

The FORUM ON GOOD AGRONOMIC PRACTICES IN THE AREA OF THE DOÑANA NATIONAL PARK will be held at the Centro Agroexperimental de Empresas Antigua Granja Escuela, Ctra. A-472, Km.58 (San Juan del Puerto – Niebla) and will be opened by María Eugenia Limón Bayo, President of the Diputación de Huelva.

After the presentation, a first panel will start, moderated by Sergio Barberá, Director of the Ethical Trade Forums, and dedicated to analyzing best practices in the agri-food sector in Huelva. It will include the participation of:
