ACT 4 CAP: Citizen engagement towards a sustainable Europe

Engaging citizens, youth and farmers in EU farm policies

Friends of the Earth groups in Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Hungary, Malta, Poland and Spain are running this project between July  2019 and June 2020.

The project’s aim is to increase the awareness of citizens about the impact of EU policies on food and farming and increase trust between rural and urban populations, as well as their engagement towards a sustainable Europe

Across Europe, hundreds of different activities are taking place as part of the project, including:

  • Citizen-farmer exchanges to bring youth, urban people and rural stakeholders together to learn, discuss and collaborate on issues related to the EU process of national CAP strategic plans, as well as building trust and collaboration between them
  • Conferences on the role of the CAP
  • Europe-wide “Good Food & Good Farming” action days during the whole month of October 2019

These will be supported by extensive online, offline and media outreach campaigns to raise awareness about building a better food and farming system in the EU.
