Final programme confirmed: CCRI Rural Policy workshop

The CCRI has announced that it will be holding a Rural Policy workshop linked to Brexit on Thursday, 29th March, 2018. The workshop, which is free to attend, seeks to build on ideas from a range of industry experts, practitioners and existing discussions to identify priorities and ways to embed them into policy thinking, and ultimately action, so that food, farming and environment policy is fit for the challenges that lie ahead in the next 70 years.
