Civil society meets the European Institutions
19th September 2012, European Parliament, Brussels
For the first time ever, a joint decision will be taken by the European Parliament and the Council on the future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).
Civil society cannot miss the opportunity to call for more democratic, fair and greener CAP.
The conference is being organised by Slow Food in collaboration with ARC2020, with the support of the President of the European Parliament - Martin Schulz. It will include diverse contributors from Dacian Cioloş, Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development and Carlo Petrini, President of Slow Food, to participants from the Good Food March and other prominent European civil society organizations. A full list of contributors will be confirmed soon.
The conference will provide the opportunity for an open exchange of views between civil society and political representatives at a crucial moment in the debate on the future of the CAP, bringing messages from different corners of Europe to the corridors of EU institutions.
The conference will kick off at 3.00 pm and will be divided into 3 sessions:
· Session 1: Opening and key note speeches
· Session 2: Civil Society: main demands and concrete proposals
· Session 3: CAP reform and European Democracy – Plenary panel discussion with the European Parliament
