Around 21% of the EU’s total surface area is covered by grassland, which makes grassland management a relevant activity for the maintenance of agro-ecosystems and rural economies. However, this resource is mostly left unused. To unlock this potential, the GO-GRASS project is supporting the production of sustainable grass-based products replacing existing fossil-based alternatives, such as fertilisers or plastic-packaging.
At the occasion of the EU Green Week 2022, the GO-GRASS project will shed light on how increased grasslands and carbon sequestration are delivering benefits for biodiversity, climate neutrality, circular economy and water quality.
This online event, taking place from 14:00 to 16:00 CET on 1 June, will present practices and resources that can foster the deployment of carbon farming linked to sustainable grassland management practices and circular agro-food systems in Europe.
The event will provide a chance for entrepreneurs, farmer organisations, policy makers, researchers, rural networks and other European and local stakeholders, to discover circular grass-based business models with high replication potential and solutions for carbon removals.
The event is free of charge but registration is required via this link.
