“How civil society organisations support legumes”

Presented by :Stanka Becheva (food and agriculture campaigner)

Friends of the Earth Europe -  - The largest grassroots environmental network in Europe, pushing for action by the EU to protect people and planet.   

After some years of campaigning for change, civil society organisations are happy to see that policy makers recognise the problems related to EU’s dependence on plant proteins from abroad and start looking for tools to support greater self-sufficiency.

The political support for this is growing, but the crucial question is how this change will be happening and what is needed for it to be successful.“
