Food, farming and nature
Support farmers, save nature.
Our vision is for everyone to be fed by farms that work with the natural world. A just transition towards sustainable agriculture needs to be the main policy focus. We also campaign for an end to nature loss, and a right to nature for all.
The way most of our food is produced is destroying the environment and harming people’s health and wellbeing. Industrial agriculture heats the climate, breaks rural communities apart, and destroys the natural world.
This system is propped-up by a handful of powerful agribusiness corporations, whose profits depend on expanding market access for synthetic pesticides, cheap industrial meat and genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). These corporations lobby actively to derail legitimate attempts for a paradigm change such as the Farm2Fork Strategy.
The current food system relies on underpaid workers with few labour rights, and its impacts, such as deforestation and land grabbing for animal feed, are felt heavily in developing countries.
Industrial agriculture is one of the key drivers of nature loss around Europe. Many of the continent’s last natural spaces are under threat.
We campaign for a just and sustainable food system based on food sovereignty, where production and distribution are radically localised and co-operative. We campaign for an end to nature loss, and access to nature for everyone.

Stop the EU-Mercosur trade deal
The EU is close to finalising a climate-wrecking trade deal with Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay – known collectively as Mercosur. But there’s still time to stop it.
