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.

European Citizens' Initiative against TTIP and CETA rejected by the EU Commission
Belgium | 16/09/2014
In response to the ongoing negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) and on the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), more than 200 European organizations, including Slow Food, launched a European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI): a tool to request that the European Commission deal with a subject and introduce a legislative proposal. The ECI called on the Commission to repeal the negotiating mandate for the TTIP, and asked for the CETA not to be concluded. Last week, the European Commission rejected the registration of this ECI, stating that the negotiating mandates on TTIP and CETA are not legal acts but rather internal preparatory acts between EU institutions, and therefore not contestable via an ECI. This decision reinforces concerns on the transparency of the negotiations and has been contested by the STOP TTIP alliance on legal grounds.
