Agriculture Our vision is of farming which respects the world’s finite resources and is fair to farmers and consumers

7 March 2019

In the wake of shocking reports of insect and wildlife decline, attention is turning on intensive farming in Europe.

15 February 2019

Over 1.7 million people have supported a campaign to make farming more nature-friendly in the Southern German state of Bavaria.

18% of the eligible citizens of Bavaria have signed a mass petition demanding bee-friendly farming – the biggest petition in the history of the Bavarian state - although the support of only 10% of the population is needed for such a petition to be legally recognised by the state government.

Europe's current model of farming and food consumption is destroying the environment and hurting people. Industrial agriculture damages water supplies, wildlife and rural communities, and its impacts are felt heavily in developing countries.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe campaigns to stop the expansion of industrial agriculture with all its negative environmental and social impacts. We promote farming and food which respects the world's finite natural resources and is fair to farmers and consumers.
