European Days of Action

OCT. 27/28   2018

Europe’s food and farming system is broken. Now, with the reform of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) under way, we have a real chance to stir it up. We want a system which supports small farmers and rural livelihoods, protects our soil, water, ecosystems and biodiversity, does not contribute to climate change or animal suffering and provides healthy food for all.

We raised the alarm to stop industrial agriculture with the European Days of Action on 27th and 28th of October 2018 – more than 60 events and actions were organized in 19 European Countries. People all over Europe grabed their pots and joined demonstrations, picnics, markets, festivals and all kinds of events demanding a sustainable transition of food and farming! And on 19th of November 2018 their demands arrived to Brussels, where we handed over an open letter signed by more than 100,000 Europeans to EU Agricultural Ministers!

But our pots and spoons will not rest. Good Food Good Farming will continue raising the alarm for a fair, green and healthy CAP in 2019. Get in touch to become a part of our campaign supported by more than 80 European organizations and thousands of Europeans.

Want to get involved?

Raise the alarm for good food & good farming!

Join us on October 27/28 to raise the alarm for Good food and good farming!

2018 is a vital moment for the future of our food in Europe: every year €60 billion of taxpayers’ money is distributed to farmers through the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Right now, the biggest farmers get the most money. But a reform of the policy is underway, and many other laws are being discussed at the same time, affecting the way we farm and what we eat. Now is the time to stand up and be heard!

We want:

  • access to tasty, nutritious and culturally appropriate food for all
  • re-localisation of food production, processing and consumption
  • food sovereignty and fair world trade
  • a CAP reform that is socially just, sustainable, supports living rural areas and does not harm other countries
  • fair income and decent work conditions for farmers, land workers, pastoralists and fishers
  • a better future in rural communities and in the city
  • many more people in farming and opportunities for youth
  • food policies that promote biodiversity, protect the environment and mitigate climate change
  • no GMOs
  • animal welfare and fewer, better-quality animal products
  • more bees, birds and other animals beneficial to sustainable agriculture
  • more participatory political processes

Sign our petition and support a fair and healthy food system for people, animals and the planet. Raise your voice NOW.
