General Assembly

The IFOAM General Assembly (GA) gathers IFOAM members, board and staff once every three years in the democratic pursuit of a common voice for organic. 

Every three years (2014, 2017, 2020...) IFOAM in its entirety meets for the General Assembly (GA), where the truly democratic and participatory nature of IFOAM can be seen in action. The GA is a dynamic and lively gathering that inspires members, board and staff to continue working towards the realization of IFOAM's vision - to be a common voice for the organic movement.

The next GA will be held in 2017 following the 19th IFOAM Organic World Congress (OWC) in India.



The call for hosting the 20th GA and OWC will be published at the end of 2016 in line with the OWC policy and host application procedure.     

At this time there will also be a renewed call for motions.
