Europe's food and farming system is devastating our climate and the environment, wiping out wildlife, harming public health, limiting consumer food choices, and it is failing small and medium-sized farmers as well as rural communities. In Europe, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is the main driver behind this unsustainable system.
The Living Land campaign aims to show that an in-depth reform of this policy is both needed and possible - and that there is huge support for reform from a wide variety of sectors. And with the European Commission currently holding a Public Consultation on the future of the CAP, we have a unique opportunity to make this call for change heard!
