At this moment, European Union countries are designing their National Strategic Plans for the Common Agricultural Policy. Now is the time to push for agroecology.

The EU Commission and Member States are discussing the national strategic plans on the Common Agricultural Policy: will these plans meet the environmental and social ambitions of the EU Green Deal? For Slow Food, agroecology will be key to making the deeply needed transition to sustainable food systems in Europe. An exchange will take place between representatives from the European Commission, the Ministries of Agriculture of Germany and Italy, an expert from IDDRI, a sustainable development think tank, and Slow Food farmers.

The CAP accounts for around 35% of the EU’s budget and has impacts way beyond agriculture. It shapes the way we eat and impacts our health and the health of our planet. It is fundamental that public money supports food that is good for those who eat it, for those who grow it & for the planet.
