The first PLANET event was organized two years ago, the largest sustainability event in Central Europe, reaching a broad audience and raising awareness of the importance of the sustainability turnaround and the impacts of climate change.
Planet Budapest 2023 is a prominent international event that presents the latest solutions with an innovative approach, showcasing the latest solutions easily. The event consists of professional, business, public and educational programmes. The event addresses several generations at once, bridging the gap between them and offering practical, tangible solutions for audiences of all ages, whether they are just learning about sustainability or already have a solid understanding.
Geonardo attended the conference morning session on the 28 September 2023, in Pavillion A titled Nature-Based Agriculture conference. Among the topics discussed by speakers were exploitative agriculture, the destruction of soil with fertilizers, overgrazing, deforestation, wasteful and improper irrigation, the drainage and flood drainage frenzy from a few decades ago, ploughing of natural grasslands and planting water-demanding crops. After the conference, MIND STEP's Communication and Dissemination leader approached various exhibitors. Some exhibitors were representatives from the agriculture and food industry, environmental agencies, agriculture research institutes, businesses focusing on sensor data collection, integration of satellite sources, and digitization of soil data through a software platform, and international organizations dedicated to promoting sustainable food practices. MIND STEP partner introduced the project to them and encouraged their online participation at the Final MIND STEP Conference on 26 October 2023.
