Events: Let's march & brunch!

This wednesday join us and 100s of other European citizens during the Good Food March & Brunch in Brussels!

Slow Food Youth Network joins the Good Food March!

Now is the time to involve Europe’s youth in the public and political discussion on the future of our European food and farming policy. Therefore this wednesday the Slow Food Youth Network will join over a 100 organisations in the Good Food March to Brussels to bring their demands for the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).

The future of EU farming policy is currently being debated by decision-makers. For the first time the European Parliament will co-decided on the reforms of the CAP. Bringning the voice of young Europe to the discussion will be essential for the European Institutions to make the right decisions on the future of our food system. The Good Food March gives us the opportunity to express our demands in Brussels for a sustainable and green farming and food policy.

At the Slow Food Conference, CAP Reform 2020, Samuel Levie will get the opportunity to present the vision of Slow Food Youth Network on the future of EU's food and agriculture policy. During the conference ARC2020 organizes workshops in front of the Parliament, where Melissa Marijnen and Marleen Brouwer will give a presentation on the 'CAP2012: food for change' campaign and talk about how to start your own campaign.

Join us as we will march for a sustainable food policy!
