Our vision:

PAN Germany

Let us face the fact, that:

Toxic pesticides are still the preferred products against damaging and annoying organisms in farming, households and in enterprises. But the negative consequences are clearly visible: Throughout the world one child, men or woman is being poisoned every minute. And the ecological systems are affected worldwide.

The pesticide industry is influencing the behaviour of consumers through publicity, that plays down the risks. And they have seats and votes on political boards and committees at their disposal, affecting political decisions following their own particular interests.

There will only be a pesticide reduction, if many people know about the negative consequences of pesticides use. Alternatives have to be made available.

PAN Germany is part of the international Pesticide Action Network. The international PAN was founded 1982 in Malaysia. Today the international PAN consists of more than 600 organisations in about 90 countries. Continental Coordination Centres are at work in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin-America und North America. The European Regional Centre is faciliated by PAN Germany und PAN UK.
