GMO-Free Europe 2012 Sponsors

Raising the funds required for our European GMO Free Regions conference is always a major challenge. We are still short of the necessary funds especially to allow for the participation of friends from small NGOs and from Eastern Europe. Millions of public money are spent annually to promote the introduction of GMOs into European agriculture both by the EU Commission and the governments of Member States. No such money is available to organise a meeting like "GMO Free Europe", nor do we enjoy the support of big corporations. In addition to the funds contributed by the organisers, we take pride in being supported by small and medium sized enterprises, organisations and foundations. They contribute to this event despite the fact that this is certainly not the most effective way of advertising and promotion towards their custumers. Thank you for sharing the responsibilty of keeping Europe GMO free!
