Rooting for Tomorrow

20 - 21 January 2021

Taking as its slogan ’Rooting for Tomorrow’, the focus of next year’s International Green Week will be on the latest topics in the farming and food industries and horticulture. ”Our stages will become a TV studio“, said Lars Jaeger. Both the opening press conference and the opening event with the non-commercial sponsors as well as lectures and discussion rounds will be live-streamed on the internet and available to the wider public.

The official press release can be found here.

Global Forum for Food and Agriculture

‘How to feed the world in times of pandemics and climate change?’ That is the question the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) will be asking. The event will take place parallel with IGW Digital from 18 to 22 January 2021. Next year the GFFA’s focus will be on a virtual dialogue, while established forums and podium discussions will continue to take place. At the GFFA some 2,000 international figures representing politics, business, science and society will debate food and agricultural policy issues.

Future Forum on Rural Development

New forms of work and participation - an opportunity for rural areas’, the Future Forum on Rural Development organised by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture will provide a virtual platform for dialogue, discussion and exchanging knowledge.

IGW Startup-Days

At the Startup Days the search will be on for agri-tech and food-tech startups with scalable and market-ready products able to meet UN sustainability targets. At IGW Digital the startups will deliver their pitches to a high-level panel of judges.

Regional-Star Award

Sustainability is also the main focus of the Regional Star Award. The Regional-Star award is presented by the trade magazine Lebensmittel Praxis and the International Green Week for forward-looking concepts emphasising regional production in the categories Innovation, Presentation, Cooperation and Organisation.

Presentations of national and international participations

At IGW Digital Germany’s federal states, the official representations of numerous countries, professional associations, institutions and ministries will also be taking part.
