Event description

Description

How can our much loved, multi-functional, protected and neglected agricultural landscapes - conflict ridden, economically challenging and bureaucraticised - be sustained for the future? FOLAR’s 2018 symposium focuses on British agricultural landscapes since 1945, and considers the post-Brexit future. A day of challenging talks with Q and A sessions from a stellar range of knowledgeable and experienced experts, will be chaired by Merrick Denton-Thompson, President of the Landscape Institute.

Speakers include:

Professor Adrian Phillips former CEO of the Countryside Commission from 1981-1992 - the post-War story

Simon Mortimer of University of Reading and Director of the Biodiversity, Crops and Agro-ecosystems Division - options for future agri-environment policy

Paul Tiplady CMLI former Lakes District National Park CEO - the role of agriculture in our National Parks

Kate Ahern CMLI of Land Use Consultants - the role of Landscape Character Assessment in valuing agricultural landscapes

Duncan Mackay of Natural England - farming out the Green Belt and

Andrew Clerk CMLI, NFU Director of Policy - post-BREXIT agriculture

Booking is essential (we are limited to 50 delegates). The Symposium is at MERL - a short bus ride or 20 min walk from Reading station. Further information and travel details can be found on the FOLAR http://www.folar.uk/
