5th Meeting of the European Shepherds Network
St. Floir – Cantal – France
Celebrating the European Week of Mountain Local Breeds, and hosted by CORAM and Aubrac and Salers Livestock Breeders Unions from Central France the 16- 25 September in St. Floir, ESN members, grassroots pastoralist organisations from different countries, will take part in a public seminar the 21 – 22 September, around the question of the autonomy of livestock systems, and the importance of local breeds on it, as well as the impact of Common Agricultural Policy on mobile pastoralist systems across Europe.
The 22nd we expect to have a meeting with the French Ministry of Agriculture to explain our conclusions.
The 23rd, ESN will also hold its 5th meeting and assembly to discuss the action plan for the future.
We will be organising ESN travels and calling for support to donor organizations.
See you in Saint-Floir !
