#EAAGRIFOOD TWITTER CHAT | ENERGY CRISIS AND FARMING
Join EURACTIV and our Agrifood journalists on Tuesday 20 September for a Twitter Chat on the Energy Crisis and Farming.
Our Twitter account @eaAgrifood will share the following questions on Twitter and invite you to share responses using #eaAgrifood:
Q1. What potential does diversifying into alternative energy solutions, such as biogas, solar and wind power, hold for Europe’s farmers?
Q2. Does this diversification present a threat or an opportunity for farming?
Q3. In the shorter-term, should more emphasis be placed on shouldering farmers’ extra energy costs, or on reducing reliance on fossil fuel intensive inputs?
Q4. What role do you see the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and its national strategic plans playing in supporting energy creation projects on farms?
Q5. Are enough safeguards in place to ensure farmers can benefit from energy production and balance this with food production?
What is a Twitter chat, and how do you join?
A Twitter Chat is a discussion between Twitter users that get online at a pre-arranged date and time to discuss a specific topic using a designated #hashtag (for this chat it’s #eaAgrifood). The hashtag links the questions and answers in a virtual conversation.
As the host of the Twitter Chat, @eaAgrifood will post questions identified as Q1, Q2 and so on, to prompt answers from participants, which are identified as A1, A2 and so on. We will moderate the answers and ask follow up questions to participants. Please be sure to use the #eaAgrifood when answering the questions.
The Twitter Chat will last about an hour. The best way to see the entire conversation is to search for the hashtag #eaAgrifood on twitter and switch to the "latest tweets" tab.
