We’ll take your message to Brussels – photo campaign

Romania, June 2012

With over 50 organisations from 15 Member States now involved in the Good Food March 2012, preparations are well underway. Although the physical march is not scheduled to start until next month, the virtual march is already up and running…  

Kicked off in Romania in June, the Good Food March Photo Campaign is a way in which anyone can participate in the march. We are asking people to send us the message they want to give to the EU institutions about the future of Europe’s food and farming policy. The photo campaign will run until September 19th, the final day of the Good Food March, when all participants will arrive in Brussels. All the messages we receive before then will be taken with us and presented in the Parliament along with the messages from the marchers.

Ask a friend to take a picture of you and your message in landscape mode; preferably with a background that links you to your message – i.e. in your kitchen or garden, at your local shop or farm. And then email your picture message to photo@goodfoodmarch.eu.

The complete album can be found on the official website as well as on our facebook page. Although not only here. The photos are being shared widely, both by individuals and by other organisations. For example, yesterday the album was posted by the Goldman Environmental Prize – the world’s largest prize honoring grassroots environmentalists…
