The topics of the current edition:
Good Food Good Farming Campaign
In the run-up to the next CAP reform in 2020, there is a real chance to shake up European food and farming. A system is needed 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. An agroecological transition at the European level is urgently needed. It’s time to get organised – to raise the alarm for good food and good farming on October 27/28! more at www.goodfoodgoodfarming.eu.
