By the organization of in-depth exchange meetings with the key representatives of the most relevant soy initiatives, the Collaborative Soy Initiative seeks to initiate a bridge building process between the different initiatives committed to the deforestation and conversion free sustainable soy agenda.
These exchanges meetings, so called the Meta Meetings of Soy Initiatives, bring together the key representatives of the most relevant global and regional soy initiatives who are highly motivated to go one step further and to contribute even more than they already do today, by bringing their expertise to the table to join forces and to reinforce each other.
The desired outcome of these Initiatives is the identification of the fields of intensive collaboration, by a process of collective thinking. The final objective is to scale up and mainstream the transition towards a global sustainable soy supply chain, in terms of volume, area and speed.
The first meta meeting was organized on 24 June 2020. The second meeting takes place on September 2020. These meetings bring together the 15 most relevant initiatives with regional or global reach. The names of the participating initiatives and the coordinators can be downloaded below.
The participants were asked to prepare a one pager with general information & specific information regarding their contributions and encounterd hurdles regarding deforestation free sustainable soy. The survey of these one pagers can be downloaded below.
