With the support of the European Commission’s Directorate General for Agricultureand Rural Development (DG AGRI), the F-FAIRCAP, Future Farmers Awareness-raising and Information for a Resilient Common Agricultural Policy project, lasting from 01 August 2022 until 31 July 2023 and being implemented all over Italy, is promoted by Kyoto Club.
The project offers an in-depth analysis into the EU CAP, Common Agricultural Policy.
F-FAIRCAP is sponsored by the Ministry of the Environment and Energy Security (formerly the Ministry of Ecological Transition), by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Sovereignty and Forestry and by the National College of Agricultural Experts and Graduated Agricultural Experts.
Goals and themes
The aim of the project is to inform about the CAP and its support tools, raising awareness on the key topics relevant to the CAP, with particular attention to the new 2023-2027 programming period for a transition toward a zero-emission agri-food sector.
F-FAIRCAP offers citizens, students, and farmers an in-depth look into the contribution of the CAP in supporting mitigation and adaptation to climate change.
Thanks to the involvement of young farmers and in order to initiate a dialogue on the critical aspects of the economic integration of rural areas, as well as to collect bottom-up proposals to be shared with the relevant Regional Governments, F-FAIRCAP may be replicated in other regions of the European Union to promote the CAP guidelines and objectives.
To increase the number of Italian citizens aware of the expected contributions from the agri-food sector in order to oppose climate change and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
To inform and raise awareness on the measures envisaged in the 2023-2027 CAP, and in the National Strategic Plan, with a focus on climate change and environmental protection.
To increase the number of citizens – especially young people – aware of the CAP support for small / medium-sized entrepreneurs and about the fact that environmental sustainability is the most competitive way of diversifying income.
Circular economy in the agri-food sector.
Renewable energy sources and agriculture.
Soil protection and biodiversity.
Support for rural areas and communities.
Kick-off meeting: opening conference at the European Commission Representation in Rome.
20 thematic online webinars: to raise public awareness on the contribution of the CAP to environmental sustainability and climate resilience and on the potentials of organic farming.
20 seminars in agricultural high schools and universities: frontal seminars in 20 educational institutions to discuss the opportunities offered by the new 2023-2027 CAP and collect the students’ proposals about the local CAP implementation priorities to be shared with the relevant Regional Governments.
Competition and Prize: the prize is dedicated to 30 schools all over Italy and is open to circular economy initiatives linked to the agri-food sector. The competition will select 5 schools which will be invited, with delegations of 4 students and 1 teacher for each selected school, to a study visit to the Italian Head of State Castelporziano Presidential Estate, just outside Rome.
Final event: final conference in Rome, to publicly present the results and proposals of the F-FAIRCAP project.
