Peter Hetherington: Land Renewed

15 October, 3:30 pm-4:30 pm
Guildhall

Our greatest challenge?

Feeding Britain and preparing for climate change are two key issues – yet there’s no strategy for managing that most precious resource: our land. While the UK government has made many promises, there’s little sign of action, as farming subsidies in England are phased out leaving farmers in limbo. Thousands might leave the land.

“Peter Hetherington offers a rich, compelling and topical analysis of the politics of farming, land ownership, and food production in the UK in an era of climate change and extreme weather.”  Patrick Butler, social policy editor of The Guardian
