CAP4ALL is a campaign to inform about the new Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), with the main goal of impacting children aged 6 to 12 and their teachers.

This campaign, funded by the European Commission and co-financed by the Confederation of Portuguese Farmers, aims to inform the entire Portuguese population about the objectives of CAP, to make known the true advantages of this policy and to clear up some doubts.

The campaign was created based on the objectives of CAP, with a simple and didactic approach, to make it easy to understand for children. Of the 9 objectives of CAP, we focused on those we considered most relevant to children:

  • CAP action in the fight against climate change.
  • The protection of the quality and safety of the food produced.
  • The contribution to environmental protection.
  • The concern for the welfare of farm animals.
  • The promotion of greater biodiversity.

Our focus is to inform children, but the rest of the population will not be left out.

It is important that we have an informed society, especially about a policy that is the oldest and most comprehensive in the European Union.

What is CAP?

Created in 1962, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is a European policy that supports society and the agricultural sector. It guarantees a stable supply of food at affordable prices; it seeks to ensure a decent standard of living for Europe's farmers; it helps in the fight against climate change and in the sustainable management of natural resources; it saves the countryside and rural landscapes throughout the European Union (EU); it boosts the rural economy by promoting employment in agriculture, agri-food industries and related sectors.

CAP is a common policy for all countries that are part of this organization, and is managed and financed with resources from the European Union budget.

CAP objectives and contributions

Availability of food at affordable prices

CAP support for agricultural production and farmers not only ensures that there is plenty and diversity of food in the marketplace, but also that food prices remain low and stable, so CAP support is for all citizens, not just agricultural producers.

Food Quality

The implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) guarantees European citizens the availability of agricultural products with the highest food quality parameters in the world.

Food Safety

The production standards followed by farmers, through the application of CAP, assure citizens that the food produced in Europe follows the highest food safety rules in the world.

Animal Welfare

The Common Agricultural Policy imposes exacting standards of animal care on livestock producers to ensure their well-being.

Environmental Sustainability

The environmental rules and controls imposed by CAP on all European farmers, including the application of plant medicines and encouraging the use of new technologies, reassure citizens that agricultural activity is environmentally sustainable and meets the highest standards in the world.

Food Waste

CAP supports and encourages measures to tackle food waste by consumers.

Social Sustainability

CAP strictly controls the conditions made available to workers in the agricultural sector, ensuring that all of them have adequate working conditions in accordance with the parameters set in CAP.

Territorial Cohesion

By encouraging agricultural production in the European Union, CAP encourages the occupation of rural areas, helping to mitigate phenomena resulting from climate change, such as the increase in forest fires.

Teacher Materials

Teachers are a crucial part of this project. They are the biggest drivers of this action and that is why we must provide the necessary tools for them to do their part. Below, we share some informational and classroom support materials. If you are a teacher, you may use these CAP materials to make your class more dynamic and contribute to the civic education of your students.
