This online bilingual workshop, held in English and Italian and co-organized with the Associazione Rurale Italiana and Rete Semi Rurali, aims to raise awareness about the upcoming changes to the European Union (EU) seed marketing legislation and what this reform means in the Italian context.
Panelists will notably explore pathways to align this reform with the right to seeds recognized by the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Peasants and other People Working in Rural Areas (UNDROP) and the changes needed to do so.

This online short course aims at presenting the institutions and procedures in charge of the implementation of international human rights law.
This training course will delve into the means and mechanisms through which national actors can best coordinate their human rights monitoring and implementation efforts, enabling them to strategically navigate the UN human rights system and use the various mechanisms available in their day-to-day work.
This initiative wishes to contribute to better and more coordinated implementation, reporting and follow-up of international human rights recommendations through a global study on digital human rights tracking tools and databases.
The project will notably identify the main opportunities and obstacles to protect the right to seeds in Europe. It will also discuss how to promote changes in European laws, policies and trade agreements to ensure that they do not infringe, but facilitate the realization of peasants’ right to seeds.
