A free one-day conference is being held for upland farmers in Wales.

“What is the future for upland farming in Wales: Beyond CAP?” is taking place at the Glasdir Business and Conference Centre, Plas yn Dre, Llanrwst, Conwy LL26 0DF on 15th March 2017.

The event will:

    •  examine the possible implications of leaving the EU, the impact of Wales’ new environmental and sustainability-focussed legislation, and policies on upland farming.
    • explore key relationships between farming and landscapes, access, the environment and nature.
    • offer farmers the opportunity to discuss and contribute to future policy developments for the future of upland farming in Wales.

Participants will hear from upland farmers in Wales, and international examples (from Ireland) where farmers have a clear say in designing agri-environmental schemes which benefit their livelihoods.

Simultaneous translation will be available during the day. Please book via Eventbrite

The event is organised by CCRI Visiting Research Fellow, Jane Ricketts Hein, at Bangor University, in partnership with RSPB Cymru and Cynidr Consulting, Powys.
