Ramping up and subsidising production of fertilisers will not solve the crisis

The Commission has published their Communication on Ensuring availability and affordability of fertilisers. However, it falls short and the Greens/EFA group is especially concerned with messages given to Member States to subsidise the fertiliser industry, and indirectly subsidising the Russian gas that fuels it.

Ecological forestry in Europe

Most European forests are in bad shape, making them easy prey for pests, diseases and fires. To restore the health of our timber producing forests, we need to manage them in a way that works with nature, not against it. Join us to hear practitioners’ experiences and discuss what it will take to mainstream ecological forestry in Europe.

Ecological Forestry In Europe

This report advances principles for such an ecosystem-based forest management. It outlines how these principles can be put into practice, including examples of forests that have transformed to this model. Finally, the report discusses how EU policies can support the transition.

Behind the smokescreen

In 2018 the European Court of Justice ruled that new gene-edited organisms are covered by the EU’s GMO laws. The ruling galvanised a concerted lobbying response by promoters of new GM technology to get these new GMOs exempted from the EU’s GMO laws. What are these groups? Why would they promote a weakening of the EU’s GMO legislation?…
