Agriculture Our vision is of farming which respects the world’s finite resources and is fair to farmers and consumers

9 May 2017

With agribusiness mega-mergers like Bayer-Monsanto in the pipeline, the industrial model of farming that we campaign against is more visible and dangerous than ever before. But what should take its place? 

At the end of last year, hundreds of small farmers, farmworkers, fisherpeople, pastoralists, and people from all walks of life working to create genuinely sustainable local food systems gathered in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, for the second Nyéléni Europe Forum for food sovereignty.

School of Sustainability

Europe's current model of farming and food consumption is destroying the environment and hurting people. Industrial agriculture damages water supplies, wildlife and rural communities, and its impacts are felt heavily in developing countries.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe campaigns to stop the expansion of industrial agriculture with all its negative environmental and social impacts. We promote farming and food which respects the world's finite natural resources and is fair to farmers and consumers.
