We launch our Wales report - Wales Field Guide for Future Generations - at an online panel discussion on 21st July, 2-3pm, as part of the Green Recovery Wales programme of events.

We'll explore the opportunities and challenges provided by the Welsh policy framework to make more rapid progress towards sustainable practices, with farming as a force for change. 

Chaired by Jane Davidson, the panel will look at some of the leading-edge work already underway across Wales, from the structural to the hyper-local, and consider how we ensure that policy translates into more healthy, nutritious and affordable food, better connected and more sustainable farming systems (including agroecology) and an integrated planning and decision making process for land use.

Panellists:

  • Minister Lesley Griffiths (pre-recorded contribution)
  • Ann Jones (Vice Chair, National Federation of Women’s Institutes)
  • Patrick Holden (Chief Executive, Sustainable Food Trust)
  • Sue Pritchard (Chief Executive, Food, Farming and Countryside Commission)
  • Sir David Henshaw (Chair, Natural Resources Wales)
  • Pamela Mason (Public health nutritionist)

This panel is part of the Green Recovery Wales 4-day event, a virtual festival of farming, food and nature. Read more and find out how to join the event here.
