    The EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is a landmark agreement that upholds and promotes the values shared by the EU and Canada. Under CETA article 22.5, Canada and the EU are to facilitate a joint annual Civil Society Forum, including participants from their domestic advisory groups, in order to conduct a dialogue on the sustainable development aspects of the CETA. Canada and the EU are to promote a balanced representation of relevant interests, including employers, unions, labour and business organisations, environmental groups, and Indigenous organizations as well as other relevant civil society organisations. Participation may also take place by livestream web-link.

    The CSF sessions will be livestreamed and recorded. There will be a zone in the Forum room that is outside of the video livestreaming area.

    The languages for the CSF are English and French. Live interpretation will be available for both languages.

    To receive a registration form please contact us via email at CSFregistration-inscriptionFSC@international.gc.ca before November 1st 2019.

The Annual Luncheon is an excellent event to bring valued clients or staff members to. You could also introduce any potential members you might know. Not only will it enhance the networking opportunities for all, but guests may also deduct the cost for the luncheon -in the amount of €55- from their membership fee for 2020 when they sign up at the event. For each new member signing up that you introduce, you will earn yourself a ‘Lucky Looney’. Click here to learn more.

    Expo 2022 Floriade Almere will be the 7th International Horticultural Expo in the Netherlands. For six months, the attention to the theme ‘Growing Green Cities’ will be focused on the cities of the future. Visitors will have a unique and meaningful experience: during the expo they will be invited to ‘explore, touch and change’.

    This expo will be the start of a new city district close to Amsterdam in the Netherlands called Almere. Almost everything that will be built for the exhibition will become a permanent part of the legacy of Almere. The structures will remain and become part of the community for future activities.

    The Earth has seven billion inhabitants and growing, and more than fifty percent live in cities. By 2050, this percentage will have increased to nearly seventy percent. With continued and relentless urbanisation, we have no option but to look for new ways to keep our cities safe, healthy and attractive and to find a better balance between ‘grey’ and ‘green’ infrastructure. We invite the world to join us and to contribute to our theme: Growing Green Cities.

    Within this context, four sub-themes are explored:

    Green: Parks – vertical green on buildings and green structures make cities more attractive and resilient;

    Food:Food habits, -production, -waste, -safety and food security solutions;

    Health:The contribution of green structures to a healthy living environment as well as the
    contribution made by green spaces to the physical and mental vitality of the citizens;

    Energy:Finding solutions to address sustainable energy, heat stress and climate adaptation, as well as the contribution of green spaces for a liveable city.

    Food production plays a major role in the green city of the future. The question is, what role can agriculture and horticulture play in accelerating this vision? The Netherlands is the second largest food producer worldwide, which is special given its small area for growing. This makes the Netherlands a hotspot for potential agricultural and horticultural innovations.

    Floriade will open its doors for six months from: April-October 2022.
