PRESS RELEASE ‘Can EU CAP it?’: gateway to the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP)

April 2015

In November last year the Groupe de Bruges officially launched a unique e-learning platform,, where all European citizens can engage in learning and discussing the oldest European policy: the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The platform consists of four parts: CAP Game, CAP Basic videos, CAP Pro course & CAP Forums. 

CAP Pro is a comprehensive e-learning course on the Common Agricultural Policy for students and others that are professionally engaged in food, agriculture and rural development. The course is available in English, Italian, French and German and can be followed in any order, at any time and at any pace. A certificate will be issued for those that successfully complete the whole course.

CAP Basic is a series of 4 videos that give a visual overview of the main topics of the Common Agricultural Policy (including future of farming, future of rural areas, sustainable management of natural resources and food security & food quality). Learn your CAP basics in a series of 10 minute videos.

CAP Game is a fun way to learn about serious issues that concerns European citizens every day. The topics include the CAP, agriculture, food and environment – ideal for teaching institutions and vocational training.

CAP Forums is a free space where everybody can share their opinions and experiences of the CAP and the learning platform, provide feedback and discuss with experts and other participants.

The ‘Can EU CAP it?’ Project has been built on the objective to increase and disseminate the knowledge and discussion of the reformed CAP not only for academics and other experts, but to make this rather complex policy also accessible in a simple way to the general public. The ‘Can EU CAP it?’ e-learning platform will continue online with information on the new CAP available in four languages and will stay accessible in the coming years.
