Join us to discuss and learn on June 3rd, 2022. The webinar brings together farmer and food chain representatives, advisors and intermediaries, policymakers, and other stakeholders to discuss the practical side of the carbon market from the perspective of the farmers and land managers.
The webinar is part of EU Green Week and is organised by Baltic Sea Action Group in collaboration with the Finnish Catch-the-Carbon programme and the global 4 per 1000 initiative. The event is co-funded by LIFE CarbonFarmingScheme project* and by MULTA project.
