“We would like to discuss in detail the aspects and measures for sustainable production and marketing in viticulture with the industry. The topic is very topical for our sector - not only the effects of climate change and the resulting extreme weather such as heavy rain, periods of drought or late frosts, but also the demand for a reduction in pesticides or dwindling resources draw the focus to the topic of sustainability. Current discussions in politics and society about the promotion of organic production or changes in marketing also require us to deal with this topic of change and sustainability. Of course, in addition to the ecological aspects, the economic and social aspects must not be forgotten!” says DWV Secretary General Christian Schwörer.
The congress will be held digitally from April 11th to 13th.
Registrations are expected to be available from March on the congress homepage at www.dwv-kongress.de possible.
