Europe needs new food policies for a future fair and sustainable food and agricultural system! Join us in Lisbon to discuss how we can achieve this!

About the Event

Recent reforms of the Common Agricultural Policy may lead to progress in the building of sustainable food systems in Europe, but other actors are also driving this progress. Initiatives lead by civil society, non-governmental, local and private organisations are coordinating action on the ground and responding to increased demands for more sustainable food, reduced food waste, and local and fair production that respects both the environment and animal wellbeing.

Europe urgently needs food policies that reflect these demands. This conference will bring together key actors in the transition to a fair and sustainable food and agriculture system to discuss the way forward.

Speakers:

  • Maria José Ilhéu (Alimentar Cidades Sustentáveis)
  • Alexandra Azevedo (Quercus)
  • Cecília Delgado (Alimentar, Cidades Sustentáveis, CICS.NOVA – NOVA FCSH)
  • André Antunes (Chão Rico)
  • Denis Hickel (Quinta do Alecrim)
