Slow Food Goes Brussels: The paradoxes of animal welfare in Europe.

Slow Food Goes Brussels: The paradoxes of animal welfare in Europe.

June 1, 2022

The protection of animal welfare on farms has gained momentum in recent years in Europe, with more and more EU citizens calling for the end of their cruel exploitation. And this is with good reason, for farm animals are considered as mere profit machines.

You’ve all seen those images of cows, pigs or chicken packed into tight cages or confined to small spaces where they spend a short but painful life. In a never-ending quest for profit, industrial farming allows farm animals to be mutilated, abused, crammed together, fed with low quality feed, and transported across the world in dreadful conditions. Overall farm animals are prevented to live according to their natural needs.

Yet, it is said that the European Union has the most advanced legislation in the world regarding animal welfare standards. So why such a gap between the European law and farming practices on the ground? How bad is the state of animal welfare in Europe, and what is being done at the EU level to right such wrongs? Also, what alternatives are there to industrial animal farming? You want the answers to these questions? No worries, Slow Food Europe investigated for you! In this episode, you will hear different points of view on this topic from:

  • Jacopo Goracci, farmer of local ancient breeds of cows and pigs in rural Tuscany (Italy) and coordinator of a Slow Food presidium
  • Andrea Gavinelli, who is in charge of the animal welfare unit at the EU Commission
  • Olga Kikou, European Affairs Manager at the organization Compassion in World Farming

SFYN podcast in 2022

March 21, 2022

Hello everyone and welcome back to the SFYN podcast. Slow Food Youth Network, or SFYN as we call it, is a worldwide movement of young activists with different backgrounds who want to contribute to a better local and international food system. If you’ve been following our podcast for a while, you know what the SFYN Podcast is all about, but what are our plans for the coming year? Have a listen what's coming up this year. Talk soon!

Youth on political activism, sustainable food systems and their relationship to the EU

Youth on political activism, sustainable food systems and their relationship to the EU

December 31, 2021

Take a break from December feasts and listen to the last episode of the SFYN podcast focused on EU food policies, in which we actually do not speak about EU food policies. While you are all recovering from delicious but intense end of the year festivities, let us talk to you about youth. These past years, young people from around the world have raised their voices, and took up the fight against climate change, inequalities, racism, war, corruption, you name it. Young people hold a great power to change the world, and more and more of them have decided to use this power to get their message across. 

Mid-December, members of the Slow Food Youth Network in Europe and students at the Slow Food’s University of Gastronomic Science gathered in Bra, in northern Italy. It was a great opportunity for us to sit down with a few of them and discuss about their views on political activism, their desire to see a sustainable food system happening in Europe and beyond, and their relationship to the European Union.

    • Jorrit, president of SFYN
    • Mallory, American student at the Slow Food’s University of Gastronomic Science (UNISG)
    • Paolo, member of SFYN in Sardegna
    • Lianne, president of SFYN Netherlands

Do not hesitate to follow @SlowFoodEurope on Twitter, but you can also follow SFYN and UNISG on Instagram and explore what young Slow Food activists are up to! See you in 2022!

COP26: What‘s on the menu for food and farming?

COP26: What‘s on the menu for food and farming?

December 14, 2021

Time for EU food policy! In this episode, Slow Food Europe talks about climate!

Few weeks ago, world leaders met in Glasgow for the COP26! Alas, this crucial international summit on climate change ended with a disappointing agreement, just when the expectations of civil society, young people, indigenous peoples, and all those affected by the climate emergency were highest. What’s more, despite causing approximately 30% of all atmospheric carbon, there was little said about food and farming.

Now that the COP26 is behind us and that dust has settled, let’s take a step back! Was the COP26 a success? What was decided about food and farming? Where does the EU stand in all this, and what is the EU’s way forward on climate change ? We answer all these questions with our three guests:

EU Farm to Fork Strategy: Science, Civil Society and the Planet over Corporate Interests.

EU Farm to Fork Strategy: Science, Civil Society and the Planet over Corporate Interests.

November 17, 2021

Slow Food Europe is back with a second episode on the EU Farm to Fork Strategy, which was proposed by the EU Commission last year to accelerate the transition towards sustainable food systems in Europe.

Last month, the EU Parliament voted in favor of this strategy despite repeated lobbying attacks from the agrifood industry. Slow Food warmly welcomed this vote, and took the opportunity to gather three panelists who have worked hard on the Farm to Fork Strategy since the start:

In this episode, our guests talk about the EU Farm to Fork Strategy and what has happened since its publication in May 2020. They shed light on the intense lobbying that the agro-chemical industry has been doing to try to weaken the Strategy, and on how you, as European citizens can influence food policy, for example through the recent successful European Citizens Initative “Save bees and farmers”.

For more details on the EU Parliament's vote of the EU Farm to Fork Strategy, read our recap article: https://www.slowfood.com/eu-parliament-gives-the-green-light-to-the-farm-to-fork-strategy/
