IFOAM begins partnership with the City of Bonn

On 10 February 2012, Andre Leu, President of IFOAM, and the Mayor of Bonn, Jürgen Nimptsch started a virtual global journey just outside of IFOAM's head-office by releasing a sky lantern with an attached message to the Rio+20 Earth Summit, IFOAM reports. From Bonn, it will travel to forty different locations across the world - symbolizing IFOAM's forty years of existence and the rich diversity of the organic world - to collect the testimonies and messages of those who, in a number of different ways, pursue their livelihoods sustainably.

To follow the journey of IFOAM's sky lantern and read about the stories of local sustainable livelihoods and the collected messages to be sent to Rio+20, IFOAM has launched a blog at www.ifoam.org/organic_without_boundaries
