The Good Food Good Farming campaign was launched in 2012 to mobilise citizens to take action, and demand good food and good farming across Europe. The biggest action of the campaign to date was the Good Food March. Organised together with the European Milk Board, European Coordination Via Campesina, Friends of the Earth Europe, IFOAM EU Group, Meine Landwirtschaft, PAC2013 and Slow Food, the event saw farmers, consumers and young people from across Europe travel to Brussels (many by bike) for a day of action on September 19th. Throughout the campaign, a photo action is running which enables ANYONE to express their hopes and demands for the future of food and farming in Europe. Send yours to:
