The RSA’s Food, Farming and Countryside Commission launches on November 1st. Join us as we embark upon an ambitious 2-year programme of inquiry.
As the UK government makes preparations to leave the European Union, this independent Commission, funded by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, is a unique and important opportunity to engage the voices of citizens, communities, businesses, academics and advocates in shaping the direction of food, farming and countryside policies.
Against a backdrop of change and uncertainty, this Commission is intended to help secure the future of safe, sustainable UK food & farming systems and to protect national environmental assets, of vital economic, social and cultural importance, for now and future generations.
The evening will include contributions from Caroline Mason, Chief Executive, Esmée Fairbairn and Sir Ian Cheshire, Chairman of Barclays UK and of Debenhams PLC and Chair of the Commission.
This launch event will be an opportunity to hear from Commissioners, the team and key stakeholders. It will be followed by a drinks reception and opportunity for networking.
