The “Transatlantic Agriculture Dialogue Tour” is a strategic dialogue format on agriculture that brings U.S. agricultural stakeholders to Germany to provide new ideas for the national discourses of both countries. The core aim is to strengthen mutual transatlantic understanding as well as to foster knowledge transfer in and around agriculture. The project will be implemented in the Berlin-Brandenburg region in November 2023.
The agricultural sector is of crucial importance for the future of the economy, society, and the environment. The U.S. and Germany both have similar goals and challenges in agricultural development, but very different approaches addressing them. Introducing an international perspective into national debates can open new ideas and foster understanding for opposing opinions.
The Transatlantic Agriculture Dialogue Tour therefore aims to:
- internationalize the conversation around agriculture to introduce new perspectives in national contexts;
- promote understanding and exchange of differing perspectives and varying approaches to learn from one another and break down barriers;
- and expand transatlantic networks in the field to foster sustainable transatlantic cooperation on agriculture in the future.
In November 2023, a select delegation of U.S. agricultural practitioners and other important stakeholders in the field will visit with policymakers, research and industry organizations, and practitioners in the Berlin-Brandenburg region to deepen exchange on agriculture between both countries. During the visit, the U.S. representatives will have the opportunity to engage in mutual dialogue with German representatives in Berlin and Brandenburg. The tour will be combined with a visit to the world’s leading trade fair for agricultural technology, the Agritechnica 2023, in Hannover.
Partner of the Transatlantic Agriculture Dialogue Tour are: Bayer AG; the Deutsche Landwirtschaftsgesellschaft (DLG); Agritechnica 2023; DIN e.V.; Klim GmbH; Agrargenossenschaft Trebbin eG. and the Klimabauern Project of the Landesbauernverband Brandenburg e.V.
