The Alliance members and their joint platform

Ever since 2000 an alliance of originally 15 and meanwhile 29 associations, dedicated to the interests of consumers, nature conservation, animal protection and traditional farming, has been campaigning for change in Europe's agricultural policies. The goal is to create a form of agriculture compatible with the needs of nature without disregarding those of farmers and consumers. The associations organised in the Alliance discuss and coordinate their work on all topics of agricultural policy, taking a common stand and working together in lobbying. The task of coordination is carried out by EuroNatur and AbL, the Association of Traditional Farmers. 

The political basis of this alliance is made up of the concepts and demands formulated in the autumn of 2001, which can be found in the policy paper „Auf dem Weg zu einer neuen Agrarpolitik in der EU" (engl. "On the way to a new agricultural policy in the EU", pdf-file 83kb).

With the policy paper published by this Alliance of associations a widely based societal coalition has spoken up to make a timely, proactive demand for a new agricultural policy in Germany and in the European Union. The associations no longer limit themselves to reacting to plans put before them by politicians. They formulate reform concepts of their own.
