What is the CAP?


The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the European Union is a very influential and important piece of policy. It comprises over 40% of the entire budget of the EU - over 50 billion per year! It forms our countryside, the environment, the social landscape and most importantly: it decides what you get to eat.

In 2013 the CAP will undergo major reforms. The reforms will influence the way our food is produced, how the European landscape is shaped and the way our food is distributed on a global scale. In other words, they will determine the future of our food. This does not make the CAP an issue solely for politicians and farmers, but for every European citizen.

This website was set up by the Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) to make people aware that such an influential policy exists and to offer them ways in which they can participate in the fight for a better, cleaner and more fair CAP.

Throughout Europe, young people, farmers, producers, consumers and all European citizens are asked to start asking the right questions, form or partake in campaigns and work towards a better future. It can be done, it shall be done, we will be the ones to do it. With your help.
