Event description
Soil degradation is robbing us of one of the best means of stopping climate change. We need to reverse it

About this Event

We will discuss how soil degradation contributes to climate change, and how and why much of the best land is suffering erosion. We will talk about the UK’s land and agriculture policies, and what we can do to reverse soil degradation. The discussion will be opened by Charlie Clutterbuck, author of Bittersweet Brexit: Land, Labour and Food After Brexit (Pluto, 2017). Charlie has three degrees in agricultural sciences and has worked in many parts of the food chain, from plucking turkeys to running on a hill farm. He has advised major food retailers, and was for years an active member of the trade union Unite's Rural and Agricultural section. He was an Honorary Fellow in Food Policy at City University London, and is a board member of Incredible Farm in Todmorden and The Larder in Preston.
