Innovation or Stagnation? The Future of the CAP

European Parliament | room SPINELLI 1E2



SM Future of the Cap Landscape

Renew Europe invites you to join the seminar on the Future of the CAP taking place on Wednesday 7 June between 15:30 18:00. This is the fourth and final seminar in a series organised by Renew Europe to set out the liberal vision of the future of the Europe’s food and agriculture system. This last seminar will examine the future of the EU agricultural and food policy to see whether it is fit for purpose or a radical overhaul is needed.

The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is celebrating 65 years in 2023 and now is the good moment to take a hard look if this policy has managed to keep up with the changing conditions, in terms of not only climate, but also consumer expectations and environmental awareness. In addition, the European Green Deal introduces a completely new set of ambitious legislation that needs to align with the current agriculture and food policy in order to deliver on its basic promise – maintaining EU food security and providing farmers' livelihoods.

RENEW MEPs Ulrike Müller together with Irène Tolleret, Atidzhe Alieva-Veli, and Jérémy Decerle will thoroughly investigate the different issues that are at stake in this seminar, together with a panel of invited experts.
