The IFOAM Academy: Nurturing our talent

Training has always been at the heart of IFOAM. Through organic training platforms, training manuals and capacity building programs, we have been addressing training needs for decades.

Since 2012, with the launch of the first IFOAM Organic Leadership Course (OLC) in South Asia, training and capacity building finally have their own home in the IFOAM Academy. We also now offer tailored training programs to a growing organic sector.

The OLC is our flagship training program, taking place in regions across the globe. The intensive, one-year course empowers participants to assume greater responsibility in finding organic solutions to address the world's environmental and social challenges.

Check this webpage regularly for upcoming OLCs in your region, or follow the links below to read about ongoing OLCs.
