    This video-blog is a rare and innovative communication tool showing how the current Common Agricultural Policy is perceived by Greek farmers and stakeholders, and how they see and shape the new CAP. There are 5 short video clips showing a young Greek journalist visiting and discussing with young Greek farmers about their experiences and views related to CAP and food security, and gathering ideas about how CAP should look like in order to meet the needs of actual and future farmers and European consumers. This video blog has been awarded best short documentary at the second annual Arclight Cinemas documentary festival in Hollywood.
