Générations Futures - International conference: Assessment and regulation of GMOs and pesticides

Générations Futures is co-organising a conference in Orsay, France on 12 – 13 November on the assessment and regulation of GMOs and pesticides.

Open to the civil society, this event organised as part of a participatory research project, based on the evaluation of all agricultural GMOs in the world.

The aim is to present and discuss the research results of the project, and debate about the impacts, evaluations and regulations of pesticides and GMOs.

The project, funded by the Region Ile-de-France, involves the University Paris-Sud 11 (UPS), Générations Futures and the Committee for independent research and information on genetic engineering (Criigen).

It is coordinated by Dr. Christian Vélot, molecular geneticist at the UPS and Vice-President of the Criigen, and François Veillerette, Generations Futures spokesperson.

Save the date! Join Générations Futures for the next edition of Pesticide action week 2016!

Pesticide Action Week is an annual and international event, open to everyone, with the aim to promote alternatives to pesticides. It takes place each year during the first ten days of Spring, when the spreading of pesticides usually starts again.

After the success of the 10th edition with more than 1,000 actions in 27 different countries, the 11th edition of Pesticide Action Week will be organised from 20 - 30 March 2016.

The campaign raises people’s awareness about the health and environmental challenges caused by pesticides and allows them to learn more about possible alternatives, by taking part in one of the activities organised. Activities include conferences, film screenings, open days at organic farms, information stands, exhibitions, shows etc.
