FOOD SOVEREIGNTY, SELF SUFFICIENCY AND THE FAMILY FARM.
November 20 – 22, Stryszow, Malopolska
Poland has a unique countryside – with very rich wild nature, beautiful landscapes, cultural traditions and many generations of farmers who love their work. It’s a national treasure. However decisions made in Brussels over the past decade have dramatically degraded the life and quality of the Polish countryside and its food. The protection of the natural wealth and diversity of the countryside and the food security of the nation is a vital issue for Poland, but so it is for all countries. In order to help realize the goal of protecting our countryside and food chain, we created in November 2000 the International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside (ICPPC). The coalition was initiated by 41 organizations from 18 countries.
Now we are inviting you to join us in celebrating this event and sharing your thoughts and ideas about the future of ‘real food and farming’ in your country as well.
You will find this a special occasion! A great chance to try delicious Polish countryside foods – traditional and organic. Participate in a lively session of POLISH TRADITIONAL SONGS AND DANCE and
take-in a VISIT TO LOCAL FAMILY FARMS, as well as explore ECOCENTRE ICPPC.
