EU’s food and farming system has become increasingly industrialised with greater chemical input, the proliferation of factory farming and the increasing consolidation by larger and fewer corporations. This is the result of different policies at the EU, national and local level. They concern agriculture, food production, trade, food safety, seed legislation, the environment, climate, health, rural development, workers’ rights and much more.
Big agricultural legislations such as the Common Agricultural Policy have ignored the position and opinion of consumers as well as sustainable and small-scale food producers and retailers. Millions of people want a different Europe with a more sustainable and small-scale farmer-friendly system. We invite people from across Europe to raise their voices and participate in different activities so that decision-makers can no longer ignore the support for peasant farmers, environment- and climate-friendly agriculture which is tied into local economies across global food chains. In 2022, Good Food Good Farming will focus specifically on a substantial reduction of pesticides in the EU as important decisions are being taken. Join us!
