Description

This was a funded two-day workshop to discuss the future of agriculture in our societies, with keynote speeches from Prof. Joseph McMahon, University College Dublin and Mr. Matthew Quinn, Distinguished Visiting Fellow, Sustainable Places Research Institute, Cardiff University.

This workshop addressed the challenges and opportunities for Agricultural Sustainability bearing in mind on-going political upheavals, including Brexit. It considered how we can ensure a sustainable future for farming in our societies, approaching this from an interdisciplinary perspective with speakers from diverse backgrounds - including the humanities, hard sciences, farmers, policy-makers etc. The workshop focussed on three main themes: 1) (dis)integrated unions; 2) agri-sustainability and new technologies; 3) an integrated and holistic approach to the food chain.
