This online event will look at agroecology in Scotland’s unique context.

The Food, Farming & Countryside Commission's Routes to Action series has brought together hundreds of people and generated richly informative discussions addressing the key challenges and opportunities of transforming farming practices at scale - from agronomy, to skills, to routes to market. The conversation is now being taken to UK nations. This miniseries will address the challenges and opportunities of transitioning towards an agroecological food system and share ideas on how to implement more agroecological farming practices – from farm to landscape to nation. 

The first in the miniseries, A Scottish Vision for Agroecologywill look at agroecology in Scotland’s unique agricultural, economic, political and cultural context.

The event panel includes:

  • Jim Booth (Head of Co-op Development, SAOS)
  • Andrew Moir (Arable Climate Change Group Chair)
  • Ana Allamand (Farming and Land Use Manager, Soil Association Scotland)
  • Christine Watson (Professor of Agricultural Systems, SRUC)
  • Laurie Macfarlane (Economist, UCL and openDemocracy)
  • Professor Lorna Dawson (James Hutton Institute) & Mat Roberts (Chairs, FFCC Scotland Inquiry)  

You can register for the event on the FFCC website.
