Can organic farming feed our growing population? Can it contribute to a healthy diet for the ones who can afford it? Or can it even be a profitable alternative to conventional farming? SEKEM, founded by Dr. Ibrahim Abouleish, demonstrates that the latter can be achieved - even in the deserts of Egypt. But SEKEM is more than just a pioneer in organic farming, it promotes sustainable development in economy, culture and social life. In 2011, SEKEM was chosen as “Sustainability World Leader” by the World Economic Forum. It's concepts, knowlege and ideas have already traveled to India, Palestine, Senegal, Turkey and South Africa - and maybe soon to Europe?
