The BOND French national workshop took place in Bergerac (Dordogne) the 15, 16 and 17th of July. The raised issue was:” Rescaling of economic value chains at territorial levels in France and Europe: do we speak the same (collective) language?”
One stake for the development of collective organizations in France is their capacity to find partners at European level also willing to develop their support to community/small-scale collective organizations for the autonomy and the development of familial-type farms.
The European dimension was the first specificity of this national workshop, the other being the fact that it took place during the “European Controversies of Bergerac”, an event focused on society and agriculture-linked issues.
4 partners organizations of Bond project, from Romania, Hungaria, Portugal, and Spain, attended this workshop, moderated by our partner from FAO. Fruitful talks led to recommendations and to a proposal for a co-signed Memorandum of Understanding.
