Launching the RSA Food, Farming and Countryside Commission's Progress Report
Join us for the launch of The RSA Food, Farming and Countryside Commission’s progress report, as we reach this half-way point in our work.
As the UK government makes preparations to leave the European Union, this independent Commission, funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, is a unique and important opportunity to involve citizens, communities, businesses, academics and advocates in helping to shape the direction of food, farming and countryside futures.
This evening is an opportunity to hear from Commissioners and the team, and for you to tell us what you think. There will be space to contribute your views on the interim findings – what have we got right, what’s missing and how you can help us develop these ideas.
Since the Commission launched last autumn, we’ve reviewed 1000 policy proposals, and hosted roundtables and discussions to explore the current policy domain. We’ve cycled right round the UK to meet people in their communities and workplaces, and set up separate long-term inquiries in the devolved nations and in three English counties to help us test ideas and understand more about what will work in practice. At this interim stage of our inquiry, we will be outlining some draft proposals which we believe provide radical and practical ways to address the challenges we’ve heard across the country.
The event will be followed by a drinks reception where you will be able to find out more about the work of the Commission and have an opportunity for networking.
