On 4 March the European Environmental Bureau, the Danish Ecological Council and BirdLife Europe will organise a conference 'A sustainable future for EU Farming?' to discuss the prospects for, and challenges facing, truly sustainable food and farming in the EU.
The event is kindly hosted by MEP Paul Brannen (S&D, UK) and co-hosted by Chair of the ENVI committee MEP Giovanni La Via (EPP, IT) and by MEP Margrete Auken (Greens, DK). The conference will be opened by Commissioner Phil Hogan.
After 4 years of work by around 100 people in over 30 countries we will hear what the international project on Environmental Justice Organisations, Liabilities and Trade has delivered to the world. We’ll zoom in on topics like mining – but we will also present cross cutting issues like those on the legal avenues for communities seeking environmental justice. A panel with policy experts will look at how and where the knowledge from EJOLT can and should be used.
When a traditional rural community in Southeast India is shattered by so-called “development”, pushing farmers to suicide, all hope seems lost.

Their struggle is the subject of a new documentary: Walls & The Tiger
