From farm to fork… to us!

Good Food Good Farming invites you to take part in our awareness raising campaign targeted towards citizens with info comics around problems in relation to industrialised agriculture. Check more info in the campaign briefing (button on the left). 

As part of the European Green Deal, an umbrella initiative that aims to address climate and environmental-related challenges, the EU released two crucial strategies in May 2020, which can play a significant role in transforming our food systems: the EU biodiversity strategy and the EU Farm to Fork strategy. These strategies include some good steps into a fairer and greener future for food and farming in the EU, setting targets to reduce for examples pesticides and antibiotics use and scaling up organic farming until 2030.

Many citizens are not aware of these strategies. That is why this campaign aims to inform citizens on problems in agriculture and food production and measures defined in the EU Farm to Fork and biodiversity strategies in relation to these. The awareness of citizens is important to get them active to pressure EU legislators to act upon these issues! With 3 small comic stories, following the protagonist “fork”, we explain problems and possible solutions for issues around biodiversity, pesticides, antibiotics and climate change.
