Jean Thevenot is a young farmer in the Basque Country producing organic seedlings. He belongs to the french farmer's union Confédération Paysanne which is a member organization of the international farmer's movement La Via Campesina. He mostly works at the European and International level with the European Coordination of La Via Campesina – ECVC.

He is able to talk on public policies promoting small scale farming and market regulations needed to reach such goal. He also works on climate, fighting against false solutions and for proposals which could actually support farmers in a coherent agroecological transition towards food sovereignty. Finally he is involved in the youth articulation, defending tools and policies helping young to engage in farming as this is the clue for a healthy and sustainable food system.
