May 23 – Conference “A CAP for small scale farmers & citizens”

21 March 2018

In the context of the CAP reform, ECVC is pleased to invite you to its conference "A CAP for small farmers & citizens", organized at the European Parliament on the 23rd of May 2018. With the participation of Members of the European Parliament, representatives of the European Commission and European peasants will be discussed the vision of European agriculture and food policies and the future of the CAP post-2020!

During a time of great uncertainty about the future of the European Union and the challenges that we will need to bear in mind, the debate on the next CAP lays on the table once again.

Which agricultural model and which measures do we need to ensure healthy food for all, guarantee jobs and incomes for farmers and repair the damage done to the environment? So many questions that need answers.

On 23rd May, one week before the presentation of the European Commission's legal texts on the new CAP and in light of the new European budget, the European Coordination Via Campesina invites you to an afternoon discussion in the European Parliament on the future of the CAP. This is a major conference where those in the frontline, farmers and stockbreeders, will discuss the most delicate and contentious issues concerning the current CAP reform with political representatives from the European Commission and other EU institutions.

The event will gather over a hundred farmers, representing organisations from across Europe, as well as a large array of civil society organisations. Themes to be discussed during the conference are divided in 3 different panels:

  • for a living rural world
  • trade and market
  • for a sustainable production
