Thematic seminars for young people – Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and Green Deal

The Development Agency of Harghita County, a subordinate institution of Harghita County Council, participates as a beneficiary in a European Union project “CAPfuture – Information measures for healthy and quality food” for the period 2021-2022.

On the 29th of June, the fifth thematic seminar for young people within the framework of this project took place in the County Council building in Miercurea-Ciuc. The event was attended by more than 80 people who, with the help of several experts, were able to gain information on various topics related to the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).

During the thematic seminars, participants learn about agro-ecological farming and the concept of sustainable agriculture, as well as the objectives and priorities of the CAP and the Green Agreement. An important aspect was also to get the views of the young people involved on these topics, making them aware of their responsibility for the development of the region. Our aim was to get young people to engage with the issues of the Common Agricultural Policy, understanding the potential of agriculture and the problems it faces. Invited experts spoke about the opportunities for farmers, the sustainability of small farms and the values that the region offers.

The seminar ended with an interactive quiz on the KAHOOT platform. In this way, participants were able to learn about issues and problems that have a significant impact on agriculture in the county.
