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.

Objectives

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.

Main Activities

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

  • In September 2018 we will start a Photo Campaign, inviting you to send us a photo with your demand for the EU’s reformed agricultural policy. The photos will be used for putting together a powerful video with a clear message to policy makers and will be handed over to all EU agricultural ministers meeting in Brussels in November.
  • On the 27th and 28th of October we will have a range of powerful actions, engaging as many people as possible, to celebrate the Good Food Good Farming system we are part of and to ask policy makers to support it.
  • We will be in Brussels on November 19th and will invite ministers to join our Disco Soup to cook up together the kind of Good Food Good Farming system we want to see. We will make sure ministers get our demands and ask them to act.
