New entrants - Devon

3rd July 2019

New entrants - exploring the views of young people in Devon.

The new entrants working group that put this report together has explored issues surrounding who will be the future of agriculture in the UK. This question is part of the broader conversation of what we want the future of farming and the countryside to look like in this country.

This report describes primary data collection undertaken by the Devon locally led inquiry, to understand the opinions of careers in food, farming and agriculture held by teenagers in Devon, specifically those views within the context of the career ambitions of these young people. This data was collected with the view to it being able to influence future plans for engagement of young people within the county.

This report is one of a four-part collection.

Note: this report was originally published on the RSA website (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce), which hosted the Food, Farming and Countryside Commission between November 2017-April 2020.
