JOIN US IN 2020

Europe’s food and farming system is broken. This year, the reform of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), 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.
