Our Work

Through engaging citizens, conducting research and convening local leadership, the Commission is setting out radical and practical proposals to transform our food and farming system for the benefit of people and planet.

Our work sets out actions for everyone. We are convening different kinds of conversations, bringing together citizens, producers, policy makers, businesses and academics from different sectors and with diverse perspectives.

The actions we take in the next ten years, to stop ecosystems collapse, to recover and regenerate nature and to restore people’s health and wellbeing are now critical.

We are working together to find common purpose and create new possibilities for action. While time is running out, as we’ve heard and seen across the UK during our inquiry, we already have many of the tools needed to act.

An open letter to Secretaries of State

An open letter to Secretaries of State

In these testing and volatile times, little is more important than tackling the global climate and nature crises and securing the nation’s long-term health and wellbeing.

The UK must not use future trade deals to offshore its climate and nature commitments to countries with fewer resources and weaker environmental standards.

The breadth of signatories to this letter demonstrates how important this is to so many people across food and farming, environment and countryside.

We’ve sent it to the Secretaries of State in Defra, International Trade, Health, Business, and International Development, as well as the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, to urge them to work together to weigh up carefully the wide-ranging implications of the trade decisions they take.
