Organised by EFNCP members Pogány-Havas Regional Association and Landcare Germany, and funded by the Satoyama Development Mechanism, this International Conference was held in memory of Dr Barbara Knowles, in Gyimes, one of her favourite places in Transylvania and worldwide.
In this event, over 50 scientists, farmers, conservationists and policymakers got together to discuss about the management and conservation of biodiverse extensive grasslands, and how to support nature-friendly farming systems which are profitable and socially sustainable in the modern context.
