Please join a special briefing and Q&A for Sustain and Link members on Thursday 17 February, 10-11.30am
The biotech developers claims that “gene editing” can solve all our agricultural woes while civil society regards it as Genetic Modification (GM) with better PR. The UK Government is pushing ahead with plans to diverge from the EU (and the devolved UK nations) by exempting new genetic engineering techniques from key regulatory safeguards in England, despite its own consultation demonstrating both public and expert opposition. After many years of relative quiet, New GM is back on the agenda and is a huge threat to sustainable food and farming, so it’s time for everyone to get involved.
Join Pat Thomas (Director of Beyond GM) and Liz O’Neill (Director of GM Freeze) for a practical briefing on the science, the politics and just what these new technologies will actually do on our farms and to our livestock, wildlife and food. There will be plenty of time for Q&A so this is your chance to ask us anything about new GM, how it impacts your work and how we can all work more effectively together.
