Brussels â€“ 10 and 11th FEBRUARY 2015
GOOD FOOD, GOOD FARMING CONFERENCE
Renewing civil societyâ€™s agenda towards sustainable food and agriculture and a living countryside
ARC 2020 platform, Friends of the Earth Europe and the organic movement IFOAM, in collaboration with the European Economic and Social Committee invite you to a conference on the future of farming and food, on fair trade and sustainable rural policies.
This 1.5-days event brings together representatives from civil society, grassroots groups, researchers, national/regional authorities, policymakers and more to:
1. Assess the implementation of the reformed CAP 2014-2020, prospects of agricultural sustainability and of rural renaissance.
2. Identify milestones to support transition of food and agriculture systems based onagroecological approaches.
So YOU are invited to work with civil society partners to develop a roadmap towards good food, good farming and a living countryside!
We want to revitalise the movement towards a common agri-food policy for Europe; we will assess where we are and, together, develop a vision for where we want to be in 2020. So let's exchange ideas, assess the threats and opportunities, separate the spin from the substance, and generate this roadmap together.
Key areas for dialogue will include agroecological and social transformation, CAP reform now and in the future, international trade, rural economies and natural resources, and a common food policy based on sustainable food systems and diets.
The building of the European Economic and Social Committee (JDE Building), Rue Belliard 99, Brussels.
