The EOU is a signatory of an Open Letter to the EU, urgently demanding change in agriculture that will support nature. The letter concludes:

“The scientific evidence is clear that climate change and biodiversity loss need to be tackled as an utmost priority if the EU is to uphold the main goal of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. The EU must be a pioneer in responding to these challenges and the CAP must be part of that response rather than continuing being the cause of greater environmental degradation.”

The full letter is here: Open letter by scientists organisations concerning CAP reform

We count on ornithologists around Europe to help change minds, for a sustainable future.

Signed by the three presidents of the EOU, on behalf of the membership:

Jan-Åke Nilsson, President | Barbara Helm, Past President | Alfonso Marzal, President Elect
