FFCC’s latest report Farming for Change introduces new research from IDDRI which includes comprehensive and systematic technical modelling for a transition to agroecology across UK nations. We are now exploring how to translate this detailed and rigorous piece of research into practical projects which support the transition to agroecology by 2030.
Routes to Action is a series of five workshops featuring a fascinating array of contributors (from farming, science, economics, ecology, food businesses and more) who will address the challenges and opportunities of transitioning towards an agroecological food system and share ideas on how to implement more agroecological farming practices - from farm to landscape to nation.
We hope that this work contributes to the groundswell of interest in agroecology and helps turn the findings of our report Farming for Change into real action. We will be including the outputs of these meetings in our final Farming for Change report, due to be published in Spring 2021.
The workshops, which are open to the public, will each cover one of the following cross-cutting themes: Agronomy, Land Management, Economics, Culture and Policy. Each session will seek to gather:
FFCC will publish a briefing on each topic before the workshop, setting out some of the issues and questions for participants to consider. Chaired by the FFCC, each session will hear from a panel of experts and give participants an opportunity for discussion around the topic in question.
