CIBO PER LA MENTE | THE MANIFESTO
2. Promote Sustainability
Jobs, productivity and an efficient use of resources
Social, economic and environmental sustainability is the best path to a more productive agricultural and agrifood sector that is more productive, uses resources more efficiently and is eco-friendly. The unfailing inclusion of these objectives in national and European policies will ensure the sector will grow, create jobs and be more competitive.
We therefore launch an appeal asking that:
• The social, environmental and economic dimensions of sustainability be included in a balanced manner in political measures.
• Job creation and job protection be promoted in the agricultural and agrifood sector, in particular youth employment, which is a priority at the European level.
• The specific competences in the administrative bodies at every level be reinforced, enabling decisions based on scientific knowledge, a fundamental pillar of European Union policies.
