On September 29th, 14:30-16:30 we invite you to participate at the online parliamentary event on "Hazardous Pesticides and EU's double standards" hosted by MEP Eric Andrieu (S&D), MEP Anja Hazenkamp (GUE/NGL) and MEP Michèle Rivasi (Greens/EFA), and organised by PAN Europe and Public Eye.
There is a growing concern by European Citizens about the use of hazardous pesticides in food production and their impact on human health and biodiversity, globally. This event aims to present and bring to the debate the issue of European exports of hazardous pesticides that are banned in Europe or their use is severely restricted, which are often detected in food sold in the European market. A debate panel with the Commission (DG ENVI and DG SANTE), the European Chemicals Agency and Members of the European Parliament will take place to discuss the role of the EU and potential political solutions.
The official language of the webinar will be English. Translation and interpreting services will be available for French and Portuguese (from Portuguese to English).
We are looking forward to your participation.
