IFAJ Congress

Join the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) congress in Denmark on June 27 to July 3 focusing on smarter farming and food production for green and sustainable growth. 

IFAJ 2022 in Denmark. will showcase the best and most interesting farms, the latest research results and the most innovative solutions. Equally important, you will get a clear picture of the challenges facing Danish agriculture. Political winds do not always blow in favorable directions for agriculture, researchers seek more constructive collaboration from the agricultural sector in debates regarding climate and the environment, and many consumers have a critical view of animal welfare and medicine use on Danish farms, even though the Danish agricultural sector is of the opinion that Denmark is a frontrunner in many of the areas that receive criticism. The fact that Danish agriculture is very export-oriented and in fierce competition on the global market only increases the challenges.

Key dates include:

  • The main IFAJ 2022 Congress will take place in Denmark from June 27 to July 3 in Vingsted.
  • The pre-congress tour will take place from June 24 to June 27 in Copenhagen.
  • The post-congress tour will take place from July 3 to July 7 in the Faroe Islands.

The main congress will consist of 20 excursions over four days. Detailed information is available in this PDF and you can visit the Congress website. In addition to excursions, there will be several workshops, including freedom of the press, and cooperation between ag-journalists across borders.
