Act 4 CAP
Friends of the Earth groups in Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Hungary, Malta, Poland and Spain ran the Act 4 CAP project to increase the awareness of citizens about the impact of EU policies on food and farming, and increase trust between rural and urban populations, as well as their engagement towards a sustainable Europe.
Across Europe, hundreds of different activities took place as part of the project, including:
- Citizen-farmer exchanges to bring youth, urban people and rural stakeholders together to learn, discuss and collaborate on issues related to the EU process of national CAP strategic plans, as well as building trust and collaboration between them
- Conferences on the role of the CAP
- A Europe-wide “Good Food & Good Farming” action days throughout October 2019
These were supported by extensive online, offline and media outreach campaigns to raise awareness about building a better food and farming system in the EU.
