This day is about empowering and expanding the environmental movement. As the health and wellbeing of every human being are closely interlinked with the health of our planet, fighting climate change requires persistent action on many levels. We, at CHIC, are doing our part to contribute to the fight against climate change and the health of our environment. So should you! Let's work together to give the future generation a clean and healthy future.
There have been several actions and events this year that focus on climate action, reforestation, or protecting biodiversity, as well as actions on food and environment impact reduction, global clean-ups, climate literacy, and citizen science. It is time that we continually restore the earth because we care about the place we live in and for its beauty.

About CHIC Project
CHIC is the Chicory Innovation Consortium. Its objective is to implement New Plant Breeding Techniques (NPBTs) in chicory in order to establish it as a multipurpose crop for the production of health-related products with clear benefits for consumers and to develop co-innovation pathways with stakeholders for game-changing technologies, such as NPBTs. CHIC will develop four different NPBTs. They will be used to steer bioprocesses in chicory and mobilize its under-explored potential to produce immunomodulatory prebiotics and medicinal terpenes. The conceptually different NPBTs will be assessed with respect to technological potential, risks, regulatory framework, and their socio-economic impacts. This will be done in close consultation with a Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG) composed of relevant stakeholders in industry and society. For more information, visit our website at chicproject.eu/
