INVITATION TO PRESENTATION CEREMONY FOR INNOVATION PRIZE FOR WOMEN FARMERS

Copa would like to invite journalists to a Presentation Ceremony on October 15 where the Innovation Prize for Women Farmers and Special Achievement Award will be presented by EU Farm Commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel and Esther de Lange from European Parliament.

MEPs Britta Reimers will also be speaking at the Conference. This will be followed by a buffet
lunch.

The aim of the innovation award for women farmers introduced by the Copa Women’s Committee is to promote a positive image of women and to identify areas where women farmers can show their expertise in innovation. The prize is awarded on the basis of criteria such as the use of new know-how, new methods or technologies in a given sector. Women farmers represent over 35% of the agricultural workforce in Europe and it is important to highlight the
activities and benefits that women can bring to agriculture.

The Presentation Ceremony will begin at 12.00 h and will take place at Copa, 61 Rue de Treves, B-1040 Bruxelles. Journalists are also invited to a buffet lunch afterwards at 13.00 h.

We look forward to seeing you there,

Best regards,

Amanda Cheesley
