Two Useful Things to Do Next Week


Belgium - 27/04/2012

The European Commission is inviting people to participate in a two-day conference entitled, "Soil remediation and soil sealing" that it will host in Brussels on May 10 and 11, 2012.

The conference will underline how addressing contaminated sites and brownfields can be helpful in limiting land take and soil sealing, which is happening in many parts of Europe at alarming rates, often at the expense of fertile agricultural lands. In this context, the Commission will present the recently published Soil Sealing Guidelines that aim to spread best practice across member states.

While we focus on several other subjects, however, we never forget that the new CAP is underway. In this context there is a new petition to sign, to make our voices heard at the European Commission.
You can read about it, and sign it here.

Slow Food Italy Comments on the Start of Italy’s Six-Month European Presidency
Belgium | 02/07/2014
“Italy’s presidency of the European Union will undoubtedly be a unique occasion for our country to set the pace on important issues, firstly the regulations on seeds and GMOs, but also animal welfare and the right to food,” said Gaetano Pascale, the president of Slow Food Italy. “That’s why we are sending our best wishes to Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his team. We hope Italy will leave its mark on the future of Europe, bringing important reforms for the economy and policies on agriculture, energy and immigration. We also hope to see the creation of a Common Agricultural Policy that takes a holistic approach to the food system, contributing to the fight against waste, the protection of biodiversity and greater support for the role of local producers and consumers. Renzi said that he hopes Europe will find its soul. We at Slow Food are ready to work hard every day to help that happen.”
