"The International Panel on Climate Change just released a report predicting the impact of a 1.5 degree rise in global temperature, and challenging us all to do more to stop that happening. The report has received lots of media coverage, and many people will now be asking ‘I know the science, but what can I actually do?’

The Oxford Real Farming Conference (ORFC) in January will be a valuable opportunity to develop understanding and collectively plan. Now in its eighth year, it has become an event that gets highlighted on our calendar early in the year. ORFC delegates are those from across food and farming, with an interest in new agricultural models. They represent those who are interested in meeting global food system challenges in original, environmentally sustainable ways. The point of the ORFC is not simply to attack the status quo but to look ahead — to ask what the world really needs, and what really can be done.
