WATCH AGAIN

The argument for a transition to agroecology and regenerative farming is gaining ground. At the Oxford Real Farming Conference 2022 we asked: how can we help make this pathway accessible, and desirable, to all farmers in the UK? Watch Dr Jim Scown present the latest data modelling an agroecological UK, and FFCC's guests explore how to chart a course that works for all.

More about Charting a course that works for all

In many ways, the argument for agroecology – that it can tackle the climate, health and nature crises facing us – is gaining ground. Many farmers and even policymakers are coming around to its potential and the need to incorporate agroecological practices into our farming system.

But now comes the hard work. How do we make a transition to agroecology accessible, practical and desirable for all UK farmers?

Come help us build a new model and chart new pathways that can help navigate this next phase effectively. We’ll be running an interactive discussion and we want your practical and creative input.

Facilitated by Dr Jim Scown, Farming Transition Programme Lead, FFCC
