European Agricultural Policy
The Common Agricultural Policy is one of the most important areas in which EU countries cooperate, and is allocated approximately 40% of the EU’s budget. However, in its current form, this policy is not only not responding to contemporary challenges, it is actually aggravating significant environmental and social problems. And long-term it is threatening the food sovereignty of EU countries. The Heinrich Böll Foundation is working to begin a widespread debate in Poland to discuss the prevailing agricultural model, the effects of the CAP and its need for reform. We support those voices calling for public money to go towards reinforcing ecologically, socially and economically sustainable agriculture.
Debate: Who has the power over our food?
Where is the world headed? How can citizens shape their social, economic and environmental circumstances? How can Poland make its mark on a changing Europe? Will we be able to stop the climate change? These are just some of the questions we will attempt to answer in order to better understand global problems that impact is in our daily life.
