Description

Brexit: Debating the Way Forward for Agriculture and the Environment in Northern Ireland

Brexit provides unprecedented challenges and opportunities for agriculture and the environment and as such farming in Northern Ireland is at a crossroads. Nature Matters NI, a partnership of environmental organisations, are hosting a conference to examine the possible implications of post CAP agriculture in Northern Ireland, on Friday 29 September at CAFRE’s Greenmount Campus.

This unique event will bring together farmers, academics, economists, eNGOs and the wider food and farming community to help visualise how a new sustainable agriculture land use policy would deliver for farming, food and nature. The event also offers farmers an important opportunity to contribute to future policy proposal development on how agriculture can grasp this opportunity in a way that truly sustains the economic, social and environmental fabric of our shared rural areas.

During this session there will also be an opportunity for farmers to discuss the development of a nature friendly farmer advocates group to champion the need for a new sustainable agriculture land use policy.

Speakers include NIFDA chair Declan Billington, AFBI agricultural economist Myles Patton, countryside consultant Paul Silcock, Ulster Farmers Union President Barclay Bell, Lecturer in European Politics Dr. Viviane Gravey from Queens University Belfast and representatives from Nature Matters NI.

This is a free and open event organised by the Nature Matters NI. We are keen to welcome farmers to this event. Places are limited so please register early.
