Register to our Networking event “UPSCALING LOW CARBON LIVESTOCK FARMING IN EUROPE” which will take place in Brussels, on 6th February. This event is co-organised by Life GreenSheep and Life Carbon Farming and aims at gathering partners of different European projects.

It is a great opportunity to exchange and capitalize on previous and existing European projects on sustainable livestock production ; to identify collectively the best practices to disseminate this new knowledge to advisors, farmers and the sector’s industries and to develop a network for future projects. Besides plenary sessions, two workshop sessions will enable to address in small groups several questions related to the upscaling of carbon farming in European farms.
