In the coming year, we have the chance to ban the use of glyphosate in Europe. Sign our petition and join our call.
Glyphosate, the acting agent in Roundup, is a pesticide not only used in farming, but also in urban areas. And we know it is devastating for biodiversity: it just kills (almost) everything.
We don’t need glyphosate for productive farming, nor for weed control. Glyphosate should be banned.
Five years ago, we were very close to banning glyphosate in Europe, with millions of Europeans citizens calling a for it. However, in a very close vote in the Council of Ministers the use was approved for another five years.
Last December the approval for glyphosate was set to expire and a new process of approval for glyphosate was supposed to be concluded. However, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) requested more detailed information from the producers on the effects of glyphosate.
This means the process of renewed approval will be postponed for a year. This is our year in which we will ban glyphosate in Europe.
