Webinar: The urgent case to stop factory farms in Europe

Thu, 19 November 2020

15:00 – 16:30 CET

A few weeks after the European Parliament vote on the new Common Agricultural Policy and with the ongoing debate about the Green New Deal and the Farm to Fork strategy, join us to discuss the role of factory farms and the meat industry in this context. What are the impacts, how is this affecting European communities, workers and farmers, and what policies do we need to build a better future with less but better meat. We want to use this space to exchange between us, learn from each other and point to successful strategies.
