Access To Land
Preserving land

Land is an essential, finite resource. Let’s preserve it from urban development and ensure that farming practices contribute to protect the quality of the soil, water and ecosystems.

Securing land for agroecology

Current land markets and policies come together to favour agro-industrial forms of farming and fuel land concentration. How can we secure land to ensure the development of agroecology in Europe?

Supporting a new generation

Within 10 years, half European farmers will retire. Currently, many retirements lead to farm closure and land concentration. How to facilitate farm succession and the entry of newcomers into farming?

Managing land as commons

Mobilising communities to ensure that farmland is used and managed in a way that fulfils its essential contribution to food production, ecosystems and human life.
