Campaign: 20 years of the Association of Local Varieties

20 years of the Association of Local Varieties

This year the Association of Local Varieties celebrates 20 years since its creation. For this reason, we have planned to carry out different activities and actions, to raise awareness of our work a little more and above all to thank the partners for their commitment and dedication to the organization.

For these 20 years we also wanted to modify our logo in order to make our trajectory visible in the actions and projects we carry out this year. You can see it in its different versions on our networks and on the web.

We have also set out to reach 220 members to celebrate 20 years, can you help us make it possible?
