- EDITORIAL -
Scandicci, Europe - Since our annual 11th Let's Liberate Diversity ! meeting has been postponed, let's start with a series of “On Air” webinars.  For the moment let us look at the legal framework of the FAO Treaty for CSBs, at seed policy laboratories, or at practical tools / advices for CSBs. This is just the beginning, if you think of proposing webinars that may be of interest..

To complete the picture, the #3rd issue of Brussel sprouts  has been released and the CSB Academy informs a 2020 call for applications of the CSB Academy

Here we go, Diversity! Just during the International Day for Biological Diversity..
