Food is essential. We need it for our lives, health and well being.
Good food is political. And as such we need a good food policy that includes the right of the poor to feed themselves; that reflects the sustainability and diversity of agricultures and that shares responsibilities between farmers, fishers and consumers for fair prices and fair trade.
The European Greens have launched a new campaign For European Food Culture! They invite all of us to join them in their fight for increased public awareness, personal engagement and participative democracy in determining and improving food policies throughout Europe.
Through this campaign they aim to provoke public debate and action on issues which concern us all, including the safety of food without sacrificing quality and taste, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), more choice for consumers and farmers through sustainable consumption and production.
Our food is our culture. Let’s share ideas and experiences in campaigning for better food culture with you.
