Europe’s food and farming system is broken. In 2021 final negotations around the reform of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) will come to an end. The first decisions of the EU Parliament and EU Council were not very promising and have rather shown the political will to continue a business as usual policy which would drive us further into multiple environmental and social crises. This is why people across Europe demand a radical shift asking the European Comission to #WithdrawtheCAP and start fresh!

We need to show decision-makers that citizens, farmers, activists and many more demand a radical shift of policies which supports small-scale farmers and rural livelihoods, protects our soil, water, ecosystems and biodiversity, helps to tackle the climate crisis and provides healthy food for all. Together we call on EU decision-makers and national governments to change directions in agriculture policies!

Get loud with us!
