Good Food Good Farming – European Days of Action
October 27th, 2018
The Good Food Good Farming campaign was launched in 2012 to mobilise citizens to take action, and demand good food and good farming across Europe.
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. Previous reforms of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy 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 the European Days of Action Good Food Good Farming 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.
To stir up Europes food and farming system we propse European Days of Action for Good Food Good Farming with a campaign including the following activities
Diversity and imagination are our strenght, involving many organizations and citizens from over 20 European countries in colourful events and online and offline campaigning activities.
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.
GFGF is supported by a broad range of civil society organizations from different backgrounds, uniting peasant with consumer organizations, environmental associations with global solidarity movements and many more.
The European Days of Action in 2018 receive financial support from various donors including the European Comission, Foundation Charles Leopold Mayer, Umweltstiftung Greenpeace and Zukunftsstiftung Landwirtschaft.
