About the European Congress of Young Farmers

This Congress was created in 2012 under the initiative of MEP Nuno Melo and the Portuguese Farmers Confederation (CAP). Thereafter MEP Esther Herranz García (Spain), the EPP Group and ASAJA endorsed this initiative aiming to promote European agriculture, rural development, while valuing the fundamental role played by young farmers in this domain.

The 9th edition of the Congress will take place at the European Parliament on 6 December 2023 and is co-organized by MEPs Nuno Melo (Portugal), Herbert Dorfmann (Italy), Juan Ignacio Zoido Álvarez (Spain) and Michaela Šojdrová (Czech Republic).
