Programme of the Low Budget Press Trip
Dutch Dairy – Innovations in emission
23-26 March 2023
Leeuwarden / Friesland, The Netherlands The Dutch agriculture and the dairy sector in particular are under heavy political and social pressure to reduce emissions. The radical interventions planned by the government have led to violent farm protest. It is clear that the farmers have to react to the new challenges.
The Dutch Guild of Agricultural Journalists NVLJ and ENAJ are inviting you to a press trip covering possible approaches to emission reductions that have measurable positive effects to the environment and don’t strangle agriculture in the same time. You will meet farmers, policy makers, researchers, scientists and other stakeholders explaining you the situation in detail. We would be very happy to welcome you on this trip!
