Event description

Description

This is a Rural Policy workshop linked to Brexit. It seeks to build on ideas from a range of industry experts, practitioners and existing discussions to identify priorities and ways to embed them into policy thinking, and ultimately action, so that food, farming and environment policy is fit for the challenges that lie ahead in the next 70 years.

The interactive workshop will be led by the CCRI and University of Gloucestershire, with help from external speakers and a wide range of partners to assist discussions across a number of areas. The programme is currently in the process of being finalised and will be published early in the New Year. Although the focus is on Gloucestershire, the workshop aims to be pulling in thoughts from further afield.

Confirmed speakers include Professor Janet Dwyer, CCRI, University of Gloucestershire, Sue Pritchard, Director of the The Food, Farming and Countryside Commission, Professor Tim Lang from the Centre for Food Policy, City, University of London and George Dunn from the Tenant Farmers Association.

The workshop is free to attend and will be held at the University of Gloucestershire Oxstalls Campus. Numbers are limited and it is necessary for delegates to reserve their place on this webpage, which will be updated as and when speakers are confirmed and the programme is finalised. It will be an all-day event, starting at 10:00 for tea, coffee and registration and finishing before 16:00.

We envisage the outputs from this workshop will feed into a number of forums within and outside the county, including the recently formed RSA commission. The outcomes will be presented as a actions for both policy and organisations based on the discussion during the event.
