ICEA, within the communities and territories in which operates, has an active and important role in sharing values and knowledge that are at the base of our choices: the preservation of the territory and of biodiversity, the respect of common welfare and of human rights, cooperation, participation and sharing of choices as a democracy model; these are some of the themes that ICEA shares, with people and companies, organizing debates and events, meetings and public events, to divulgate to operators and general public the advantages that are linked with the organic choice, to promote the idea of the need to include responsible choices both in companies' strategies and in the everyday life of people.
Moreover, through the association BIOLITALIA, ICEA is activating “quality circles” in the organic sector, promoting the development and the aggregation of organic producers (through meetings, training courses, forums, prizes), to continuously improve the quality of organic products, and give better opportunities to companies and better products to consumers that choose organic.
ICEA is involved in many different international cooperation projects, cooperating with many national and international organizations, governmental and non-governmental, operating in different countries and regions: ICEA shares its experience with developing countries, sure that organic farming techniques and, more generally, economic choices linked to environmental sustainability and the respect of human rights can represent a development tool that facilitates also the weakest economies in accessing international markets.
