ABOUT CEJA 

What is CEJA?

CEJA is the voice of Europe’s next generation of farmers and one of the key advocates for the agricultural sector in Europe. Based in Brussels, it brings together young farmers' organisations from across Europe with the main objective of promoting a younger and more innovative agricultural sector across the EU and to create good working and living conditions for young people setting up in farming as well as existing young farmers. It currently has 29 member organisations and one associate member, representing 21 different European countries and over one million young farmers.

CEJA’s main objective is to promote a younger and innovative agricultural sector across the EU 27 and to create good working and living conditions for young people setting up in farming and those who are already ‘Young Farmers’. CEJA achieves this by acting as a forum for communication and dialogue between young farmers and European decision makers.

What else does CEJA do?

CEJA is also involved in a number of pan-European projects that focus on young farmers. These projects range from

  • Promoting farming practices that find practical ways to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions on farms.
  • Addressing the problems of an ageing workforce and young people leaving the countryside
  • Working with other youth organisations such as the European Youth Forum

For further information about the projects CEJA is involved in please visit the CEJA website.
