  • Do you need inspiration about how to build resilient communities which are adaptable to climate change?
  • Are you looking for new land management options that better meet both wildlife and society’s needs?
  • Are you concerned about how your farm or business will thrive in a changing world? And do you want to go from producing food, to producing natural capital?
  • Do you want to work with young people and local innovators, to find solutions to climate and biodiversity issues?
  • Do you want to create new links and partnerships across a range of communities and disciplines?

In the context of climate collapse, biodiversity declines, social challenges, entrenched farming systems and a faltering model of economic growth our Landscape Innovation Conference aims to stimulate new approaches to land and community that can meet the complex requirements of the 21st Century.
