European Citizens’ Initiative: Protecting the EU’s rural heritage, food security and supply
The European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) “Protecting the EU’s rural heritage, food security and supply” was launched on 2 November. The initiative has the following objectives:
- Valuing cultural heritage,
- Preserving and promoting European agriculture, rural territories and regional heritages,
- Maintaining food security,
- Promoting investment and rising living standards in rural areas.
To oblige the European Commission to respond (positively or negatively), this citizens’ initiative must reach, within one year, 1 million signatures of European citizens from at least 7 Member States.
Euro Foie Gras calls on MEPs, stakeholders and European citizens to support this ECI.
