THE 2017 OXFORD REAL FARMING CONFERENCE!
From practical on-farm experience, to participatory workshops and talks from the UK’s leading sustainable food experts, the Oxford Real Farming Conference will once again offer a range of ways for delegates to explore agroecological solutions to common farming challenges.
Consisting of simultaneous sessions, filling the Oxford Town Hall for two days, delegates can explore issues from bees and neonicotinoids, to micro-biology and human and animal gut health, to food policy, organic farming, the benefits of adding trees on farms, to better jobs in better farming, and much more.
We have a number of speakers confirmed who we are really excited about, including Olivier De Schutter, the 2008 - 2014 UN Special Rapporteur On The Right to Food. We will also be coordinating farm visits ahead of the conference, so watch this space for more details and announcements. We have student tickets, and bursaries available, so please write to me directly if you would like to apply.
Come join the debate in January next year and be part of creating a fairer and intelligent food system for people and planet!
