Last week, June 20th, saw 3 farmers from 3 continents bring 3 perspectives to Brussels. ARC2020, Misereor and Meine Landwirstschaft, along with the support of Generation 112 and Slow Food Youth Network, organised a public discussion round at Mundo B to discuss the international impact of the CAP, and the possible alternatives that exist.
The 3 farmers – Hellen Yego from Kenya, Joe Borgerding from the US and Sieta van Keimpema from the Netherlands have been travelling around Europe for the past two weeks now, attending meetings with MEPs, local representatives, chefs and foodies, and the press. The group also took part in an interview with Generation 112. You can find this here:
