Film Screening: The Crops of the Future

The Crops of the Future is Marie Monique Robin latest documentary, which completes her trilogy after The world according to Monsanto (2008) and Our daily poison (2011). Ms. Robin shows that is possible to tackle the food crisis together with the environmental and climate crises. On October 8th 2012, the screening of this film was organized by SOS Faim at the European Parliament with the support of three MEPs: Charles Goerens (ALDE), Mariya Gabriel (EPP) and Bart Staes (The Greens).
Prioritising and supporting small-scale farmers must be the core of future policies that aim at tackling energy, climate, poverty and biodiversity issues. By exploring agro-ecological practices from different continents, the film demonstrates that another type of agriculture is possible and shows how revisiting farmers’ practices and rethinking the agricultural production system can help to meet the most important challenges of our time.
