Our Idea of Europe


Since it was founded more than 20 years ago, Slow Food has defended small-scale traditional food producers and raised awareness among consumers at the grassroots level. Its aim is to create a more responsible food system, based on the pleasure and sharing of good, clean and fair food.
Now the time has come for us to liaise with the European institutions to promote our common vision and find common solutions.
We have to work together to design better policies to address the paradigms of food production and related problems such as climate change, the risk of biodiversity loss and our impact on developing countries.
Future policies are bound to affect all of us. Which is why we invite all European citizens to join the debate and also ... join Slow Food.

Europe needs agroecology, not agrochemicals: CAPreform must encourage food sovereignty and biodiversity
Belgium | 10/04/2014
For the last 50 years the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has played an instrumental role in how food and farming systems develop in Europe and further afield. Slow Food together with many other European NGOs has been calling for a transition towards a greener and fairer agriculture, supporting agro-ecological food systems that work within ecological and equitable limits – to achieve food sovereignty in Europe and the rest of the world. Now it is in the hands of the Member States to implement this transition. We are inviting citizens, organisations, politicians and local authorities to look for existing solutions in their Member States and regions and to find the best ways to support them under the new Common Agriculture Policy 2014-2020.

Ashton and Schulz joint statement on the European Consensus on Development
Belgium | 03/04/2014
Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, signed today in the EP the European Consensus on Development, in the presence of the President of the EP, Martin Schulz. Ahead of the European Year for Development 2015, this renewed commitment is both timely and significant. The signature underscores that the EU's determination to eradicate poverty is as vital today, the last year for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals, as it was when the Consensus was first signed at the end of 2005."
