Francois Veillerette, PAN Europe board member, speaking at the international press launch of ‘Message in a Bottle’ March 2008The more people know about hazardous pesticides, the more people understand the need for action. 

That's why PAN Europe works to engage a wider audience on the presence of hazardous pesticides in our food, water systems, soil and air.

In March 2008, PAN Europe made international headlines when we demonstrated the presence of pesticides in forty bottles of wine. A year earlier we reported on illegally contaminated fruit sold inside the European Parliament. 

PAN Europe regularly provides informed comments to journalists writing on pesticides issues. 

We also participate in public seminars - ranging from workshops organised by the European Green Party to debates hosted by the pesticides industry.
