Organic 3.0 and SDGs are the key themes for OLE 2017 which are presented and promoted during, before and after OLE.

● Theme 1: Organic 3.0 – by IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movement )

Organic 1.0
Efforts by organic pioneers which started from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century.
Organic 2.0
Since the 1970s aiming at expanding the scale of the organic market by spreading global standards, standards and certification globally.

Organic 3.0
Organic 3.0 looks at the next era and items which have not been covered by Organic 2.0. Particular attention is given to developing countries and small farmers, alternative certification systems, networking between organic farmers and consumers. Other important issues are the environmental and sustainability depletion of natural resources, conservation of global warming and biodiversity, beyond the framework of organic agriculture. This leads to the second theme SDGs.
