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

16 February 2015

Friends of the Earth Europe, ARC2020 and IFOAM EU Group's 'Good Food Good Farming' conference this week brought together more than 150 civil society members, policymakers and farmers to find solutions to fix Europe's broken food system and to take up the task of making organic, local and sustainable farming the rule, rather than the exception, across Europe.

Across Europe, there is overwhelming support for the benefits of local, sustainable food – yet opinion polls show that it is hard for people to access it and citizens are demanding more of policymakers to improve the situation.

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.
