PAN Europe supports 'Semaine Sans Pesticides' - Pesticide Action Week- a grassroots initiative orchestrated by the French NGO Generation Future, taking place during the first ten days of every spring (20th-30th of march) when usually the spreading of pesticides resumes. Through PAN Europe's involvement this movement is now reaching beyond France and into other European countries.
The public is invited to get better informed about the sanitary and environmental challenges caused by pesticides and learn more about possible alternatives to pesticides by taking part in one of the hundreds of organised activities: conferences, panel discussions, film showings, workshops, open days at organic farms, information stands, exhibitions, shows…
Through PAN Europe's involvement, this movement is now reaching beyond France and to other European countries.
PAN Europe also works to assist organisations from Central and Eastern Europe to disseminate information on pesticides. Key documents have been translated into Bulgarian, Slovenian, Slovakian and Armenian and local initiatives have been supported.
This year, PAN Europe is organising various activities in the framework of the 12th edition of Pesticide Action Week. More information>>
