Given that it is already the 11th January, I’m guessing that it is already too late to say Happy New Year to most people, but just in case you don’t feel as if you are most people, Happy New year to you!!
Two new events to let you know about:
I am delighted to have been invited to present at, and then chair a session on, Regenerative Agriculture at this week’s AICC conference. So RegenAg is a conservation and rehabilitation approach to food and farming systems that can be applied to conventional agriculture – potentially allowing productive farming to occur in an environment where you can increase the fertility of the soil and promote biodiversity. Cannot wait to hear more.
I am also really looking to giving my thoughts on Next steps for UK chemical industry and priorities for UK REACH at next week’s Westminster Forum event. OK, so REACH is never going to be my specialist subject on Mastermind, but it is important that food security and environmental safety is a key consideration when all new policy decisions are taken.
