The voting is open!

It was May 2022 when the Baillet Latour Belgian Tree of the Year contest was opened to all those tree lovers who wanted to submit their favourite tree. We received many entries, all beautiful trees with a chance to win the generous money prize and the honourable title of Tree of the Year 2022, and also to represent Belgium in the European competition that will take place in 2023.

During the summer, all submissions were analysed and judged by a professional jury, which then selected six laureates. This way, one tree was chosen for each Flemish province and also a regional winner for Brussels, which can be voted on as from today via the website of tree of the year: https://boomvanhetjaar.be/

The European Bee Award is launching the call for applications for 2022! The European Landowners’ Organization (ELO) and the European Agricultural Machinery Industry Association (CEMA) invite you to submit your project by Friday, September 23, 2022.

ELO is pleased to announce the publication of the study “Implications of the European Green Deal for agri-food trade with developing countries” by prof. Alan Matthews. The paper examines how European measures taken to implement greater coherence between agriculture, trade and Green Deal policies might impact on developing countries. While looking also at other multilateral, bilateral or unilateral trade policy measures, this study focuses mainly on mirror clauses.
