Wales as an environmental leader

cropped-wales-image3Does Wales have a role in leading the world on environmental politics? Can it through its environmental practices generate an international response to shared environmental problems?

The RCE Food Working Group was invited to present a paper in February at the Wales Environmental Leadership Conference organized by the Department of International Politics, Aberystwyth University.

The conference was a very interesting mix of people from science, politics, art, geography, law and other areas, sometimes connecting with each other and other times talking quite different languages. Everything of course had some bearing on food, whether it was the diversion of land into biofuel production or adaptation to climate change, cutting edge agricultural research or public engagement through the arts, so it was a happy hunting ground for the food group.

Our paper was a handy summary of what the food group has done so far, and you can read it here.
