ARC2020 launched Good Food Good Farming campaign
In 2012 ARC2020 launched Good Food Good Farming campaign to mobilise citizens to take action, and demand good food and good farming across Europe. The biggest action of the campaign to date was the Good Food March to Brussels. Organised together with the European Milk Board, European Coordination Via Campesina, Friends of the Earth Europe, IFOAM EU Group, Meine Landwirtschaft, PAC2013 and Slow Food, the event saw farmers, consumers and young people from across Europe travel to Brussels (many by bike) for a day of action on September 19th 2012.
With a strong European network now in place, the campaign is set to go on with a number of new actions on the horizon. The photo action which was launched during the Good Food March will continue to run. The action allows ANYONE to express their hopes and demands for the future of food and farming in Europe. These messages will be communicated to decision-makers in Brussels: The first 1000 have already been presented to all EU Agricultural Ministers, and many MEPs, in a book of citizen testimonials. More
