On Thursday 16th September, Rural Policy Group launched its Green Futures report at MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s London Wall headquarters, supported by the most important RED Talk of the year, Building a Sustainable Rural Economy.
The report examines the relationships between food, farming, health and nature. It positions food & farming at the epicentre of public health and natural resource management, as the provider of clean fuels and energy to power the wider economy, and essential to the evolution of a healthier society and a more just and sustainable UK plc.
In the report and the supporting talk we discuss the need for financial sustainability in food & farming to encourage investment in environmental sustainability, and how to achieve progress in both. We also begin to frame a rural-first economic policy for a green recovery.
