Europe has a longstanding tradition of supporting agriculture to secure our food supply, especially after World War II. The European Union's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), founded in 1962, still gives shape to today's agricultural system.
Today, the Food Film Festival hosts the launch of Food Politics.eu. Food Politics is an international web campaign that aims to facilitate a public debate on the future of our food with a European dimension, mostly by using social media to connect online, but also offline - like today!
