About Us

In 2021, crucial decisions will be taken by the European Union and national governments regarding the future of food and farming. As we are in the middle of the hot phase of the political negotiations concerning the EU farming policies, it is our moment to get loud to prevent politics from wasting another decade!

We are citizens, activists, farmers, bee-keepers, chiefs and many more that are asking for a radical transition of EU farming policies! We see the need to put pressure on decision-makers that we need a fairer and environmental future for food and farming! Europe’s food and farming policies need to be stirred up!

What?

We can proudly look back of three years of diverse and empowering mobilisation in 2018 and 2019 and 2020.

Even if the pandemic limited our possibilities to be active in 2020, pan-European Good Food Good Farming Days of Action were organized in 16 countries in October 2020. A range of powerful actions and events celebrated the Good Food Good Farming alternatives! Thousands of people joined 82 events in capital cities, towns and villages across Europe and online: demonstrations, protest picnics, local markets, farm visits, workshops and online-seminars, conferences, and others.

Who?

A civil society alliance launched the Good Food Good Farming campaign in 2012 to mobilise citizens across Europe. The Good Food March saw farmers, consumers and young people from across Europe travel to Brussels for a day of action in September 2012. The campaign was revived in 2018 for the new round of the CAP reform.

In 2020, over 350 civil society organisations from different backgrounds supported Good Food Good Farming. Bringing together peasant with consumer organizations, environmental associations with global solidarity movements and many more.

We are a diverse movement supporting the idea of a world based on solidarity where diversity and tolerance are a strength. We stand against discrimination based on person’s origin, skin colour, religion, sexual identity and orientation, abilities or any other characteristic.

Why?

EU’s food and farming system has become increasingly industrialised with greater chemical input, the proliferation of factory farming and the increasing consolidation by larger and fewer corporations. This is the result of different policies at the EU, national and local level. They concern agriculture, food production, trade, food safety, seed legislation, the environment, climate, health, rural development, workers’ rights and much more.

Previous reforms of the EU’s CAP have ignored the position and opinion of consumers as well as sustainable and small-scale food producers and retailers. Millions of people want a different Europe with a more sustainable and small-scale farmer-friendly system. We invite people from across Europe to raise their voices and participate in different activities so that decision-makers can no longer ignore the support for peasant farmers, environment- and climate-friendly agriculture which is tied into local economies across global food chains.
