Green Paper on Food, Nutrition, Agriculture and Rural Areas - Good food, strong agriculture, vibrant regions
Date:
27.03.17

Cover Brochure

Healthy food and nutrition is a very immediate and personal part of our lives, and it is our agricultural sector that lays the foundation for this. Our agricultural, horticultural, viticultural and forestry sectors are also instrumental in shaping our homeland and landscapes. Food, agriculture and homeland: since time immemorial, these three aspects have been inextricably linked. However, our post-industrial, globalised societies, which rely heavily on the division of labour, have caused many people to lose sight of this natural connection. Until well into the 20th century, the crucial question was whether enough food could be produced for everyone; in contrast, contemporary social and political debate sometimes even questions whether we need a productive agricultural sector at all. This attitude often goes hand in hand with a pronounced criticism of globalisation. There are often fundamental objections to our aim of using our agrarian production in Europe to help feed the world. Some groups even put forward the idea that agriculture should focus only on protecting nature and conserving biodiversity.
