One year to ban glyphosate (and to save our biodiversity)

Glyphosate, the acting agent in Roundup, is a pesticide not only used in farming, but also in urban areas. And we know it is devastating for biodiversity: it just kills (almost) everything.

We don’t need glyphosate for productive farming, nor for weed control. Glyphosate should be banned.

Five years ago, we were very close to banning glyphosate in Europe, with millions of Europeans citizens calling a for it. However, in a very close vote in the Council of Ministers the use was approved for another five years.

Last December the approval for glyphosate was set to expire but the process of renewed approval was postponed for a year. In the coming year, we have the chance to ban the use of glyphosate in Europe.

Stand with Ukraine: Let's stop fuelling war!

Europe's addiction to gas and oil from Russia funds Putin’s war in Ukraine. It's now more urgent than ever to make the EU energy independent!

We need a renovation revolution. Time to insulate homes, to save energy, and to accelerate our transition into renewable energy so we immediately reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

We must end this energy dependency and accelerate to a 100% renewable economy.

By doing so, we help the people of Ukraine fight for their freedom.

Show your support for Ukraine and spread the message.
