Apr 30, 2018 | News

(30 April 2018) – Slow Food has launched its concrete recommendations on the future CAP at Terra Madre Nordic, an event taking place in Copenhagen, that gathered more than 200 small-scale producers and farmers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Åland, and Sápmi.

The 10 recommendations are based on the results of a survey that Slow Food conducted between July 24 and November 21, 2017, in which 10,000 small-scale farmers and producers were interviewed about what policy measures would most support or hinder their work.

Moving forward, Slow Food will organize important awareness-raising activities involving national networks in a series of events in Europe that will lead to the publication of the full legislative proposal on the CAP expected on May 29, 2018, from the European Commission.
