In February 2017 the European Commission has launched a public consultation on the future of our food and farming system. 258,708 Europeans and 600 organisations and businesses joined our Living Land action and asked for a radical reform of the EU's broken Common Agricultural Policy.

On 11 May the Living Land coalition has handed over the signatures and logos to the Commissioner Phil Hogan.



The Commission is expected to present its response to the consultation in a Conference on 7 July.

There is no farming without nature. But industrial agriculture is the main cause of biodiversity loss, causing air and water pollution, and soil degradation.

We want a better farming system that protects Europe’s nature and climate.
 

CAP accounts for almost half of Europe’s budget, but most of our small and medium farmers have been put out of jobs. Why? Because 80% the CAP direct payments go to 20% of the richest agro-businesses.
 
We need a fairer system!

We are what we eat: our health is strictly related to the variety and quality of the food we eat. But so much of the food that ends up on our plates is sprayed with harmful pesticides and is tasteless.
 
We want good food that has the taste of nature in it!
