Viva! Farming Launch
YOU’RE INVITED TO THE LAUNCH OF VIVA! FARMING
At the most recent Conference on Climate Change (COP26), 26 nations set out new commitments to change their agricultural policies to become more sustainable and less polluting, and to invest in the science needed for sustainable agriculture.
The topic of the discussion is: “Is the future of sustainable farming animal-free?”.
While groups like the NFU argue net zero farming can be achieved in a system where animals are farmed for meat and dairy.
Join Britain’s most insightful speakers on this issue at a four versus four debate to coincide with the National Farmers Union Conference 2022.
Marking the launch of Viva! Farming, the debate promises to see a lively exchange of views between some of the country’s deepest thinkers on sustainable agriculture.
Due to Covid-19 we had to re-schedule the initial launch event.
NEW DATE: 21 February, Birmingham
