Land and Food: Social Justice and Ecological Responsibility
The People’s Land Policy is holding a series of four seminars to discuss what needs to be done in order to achieve a food and agricultural system which produces healthy food for all and facilitates environmental objectives such as reducing CO2 emissions and restoring ecosystems. With Brexit and the new Agricultural Act, it is crucial that we all understand the issues. Food is a basic necessity, with many people not having food security. And, agriculture takes up over 70% of land in the UK. For these reasons, how we organise agricultural production affects us all and is interlinked closely with environmental and social issues.
Each seminar will have a panel of speakers and opportunity to ask questions and discuss and will start at 7 pm. Please click on the Eventbrite link for more details.
The seminars are:
