The concept of Participatory Guarantee Systems (PGS) is relatively new but the idea has existed in theory and in practice since the organic movement started to develop. There are many good models around the world, which can inspire and motivate other initiatives! They also serve as examples for those advocating for alternative guarantee systems or for practitioners and researchers interested in participatory approaches to guaranteeing quality.
IFOAM has been collecting and compiling publications, videos and other important resources, which are all part of the PGS Media-Library: here you can watch videos, read and download brochures, guidelines, articles and much more.
All publications are available for free download!
