Our work is organised into 6 main themes which provide the main building blocks of FACE’s work and encompass over 100 dossiers which require insight, monitoring and expertise from the FACE Secretariat and Members.
With the trans-boundary nature of many of the world’s environmental problems, an increasing number of multilateral environmental agreements exist with implications for national policies.
FACE and its Members seek to ensure that hunters can acquire, possess, use and travel with firearms and ammunition safely and without unjustified bureaucracy, costs or restrictions.
Throughout Europe there exists different hunting methods, traditions and cultures. These often have significant regional importance for hunting and bring richness to the diversity of hunting in Europe.
Known as the “Hunting Intergroup”, the European Parliament’s Intergroup “Biodiversity, Hunting, Countryside” was created in 1985 and is one of the oldest and most active parliamentary platforms. With more than 100 actively supporting MEPs the Intergroup promotes the role of hunting and other forms of sustainable use of natural resources. FACE has provided the secretariat for this intergroup since 1985 while the European Landowners’ Organization (ELO) serves as co-secretariat.
