They make it happen! Preserving land for local and agroecological farming
By 2030, we want organic on every table. We want organic and agroecological practices employed on more than half of EU farmlands. To achieve this goal, a part of our Vision 2030, organic farmers must have access to land.
In the light of competing land uses, increasing concentration in land ownership, rising land prices and land abandonment, the European Network for Access to Land unites farmers and community led initiatives from many European countries to:
- Strengthen practical knowledge on access to land;
- Work towards acquiring land through crowdfunding, land trust schemes and other financial tools; and
- Advocate for an evolution of national and EU policies and regulations on land use and management.
