Webinar: Hazardous pesticides and the EU's double standards

On September 29th, from 14:40 to 16:30, we invite you to participate in this online event 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 online 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 (including ex UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and toxics Baskut Tuncak, ex French Environment Minister Corinne Lepage and Public Eye pesticide expert Laurent Gaberell) with the Commission, 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).
