Grasslands as carbon sinks – How carbon farming and grass-based business models can contribute to the EU Green Deal
Free online webinar
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, most of this resource is mostly left unused. To unlock this potential, the Horizon 2020 GO-GRASS project (https://www.go-grass.eu) 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, which focuses on the European Green Deal, 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 to 16 CET on 1 June 2022, 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.
