How can good food and farming lead an economic recovery? Join us and representatives from across the food and farming sector for the Sustain Annual Conference 2020 #Sustain2020.
This online event will focus on putting food and farming at the heart of our economic recovery post COVID19. Food, farming, and fishing sectors have the potential to deliver more jobs and better livelihoods and are central components to the UK’s environmental recovery plans.
Our annual conference will bring together farmers, food businesses, researchers, civil society groups and policy leaders from across these sectors, to share insights into how we can boost the economic recovery through sustainable food and farming.
Guest speakers include:
Luke Pollard MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
Henry Dimbleby was given the role of lead non-executive board member of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in March 2018. In June 2019 the Environment Secretary appointed Henry Dimbleby to lead the National Food Strategy.
Co-founder of the Leon restaurant chain and Sustainable Restaurant Association, he also co-authored The School Food Plan (2013), which set out actions to transform what children eat in schools and how they learn about food.
