Majorca is an island typically associated with mass tourism and consumerism – which is bad news for many Majorcans, particularly when it comes to their food sovereignty. There are huge demands on agricultural (and other) resources on the island: over the summer resource demands are tripled or even quadrupled to cater for the temporary holidaying population. Amigos de la Tierra/Friends of the Earth Spain are trying to fix the system by promoting sustainable, local food solutions that reconnect farmers with those who consume their food.

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.
