Stephanie Roth and the Future of Farming in Europe

November 1, 2012

Lorrae Rominger, Interim Executive Director of the Goldman Prize, recently returned from a trip to Europe where she had the opportunity to engage with potential nominators and connect with past Goldman Prize winners.

On the first leg of her trip, Rominger met with 2005 Prize recipient Stephanie Roth in Berlin, Germany, where Roth now lives. Roth won the Goldman Prize for leading an international campaign to stop the construction of what would have been Europe’s largest open cast gold mine in Romania.

Today, Roth works for The Agricultural and Rural Convention (ARC2020), a network of more than 150 civil society groups and organizations devoted to agricultural policy reform in Europe.

In the photo above, Roth shows off one of her most recent projects: collaborating with Good Food March on the new book, The Future of Food and Farming We Want: What EU citizens expect from a common agricultural policy.

Earlier this year, Roth invited 2012 Prize recipient Sofia Gatica to participate in a speaking tour of Europe. The hugely successful tour was funded by ARC2020 and their partner organization Foundation on Future Farming.

Check back next week for more updates from Rominger’s European outreach trip.
