José Bové, Candidate for the EU Commission presidency, Group of the Greens

In the run-up to the European elections, Talking Europe brings you a series of interviews with the top candidates for the EU Commission presidency. José Bové was chosen by the European Green Party to campaign for his party across Europe. A sheep farmer and Roquefort cheese producer-turned-MEP, Bové rose to global fame 15 years ago after he demolished a half-built McDonalds in the French town of Millau. The Green MP warns the crisis should be no excuse for backtracking on environmental policies.

In partnership with HEC Paris Executive Education and the HEC Europe Institute.
