Ideas wanted for Oxford Real Farming Conference
In six months’ time the Oxford Real Farming Conference will mark its 10th anniversary. They are looking for speakers and topic ideas to celebrate this event.
The ORFC is an annual gathering which brings together farmers and growers with scientists, economists, activists, and anyone else with a keen interest in food sovereignty, agriculture and everything in between. It offers a mix of practical and on-farm advice, new techniques for best practice in agroecological farming, discussions around our global food system and the economic and trade policies that affect British farming and much more.
The 2019 event will take place on 3-4 January at Oxford Town Hall and the organisers say they are looking for:
1. Proposals for sessions
By proposing a session you are committing to taking on the bulk of its organising; we will want to know how the sessions will be chaired, who the speakers will be and how the audience will be engaged and encouraged to participate in the session.
2. Ideas for speakers / topics / themes you'd like to feature at ORFC 2019
We are looking at exploring new formats for ORFC 2019. Perhaps you don’t feel able to organise a session but would still like to let us know about someone you've heard speak who has inspired you, or suggest a particular topic that you would like to explore at ORFC 2019. Whatever you would like to feature at ORFC 2019, please get in touch and let us know.
3. Thoughts on how we can celebrate the 10th anniversary of the ORFC
We feel the 10th anniversary is a chance to celebrate the ORFC and everything that is good in real farming. We have some thoughts but we would welcome your ideas on how we should celebrate.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 10th August 2018. Please send your ideas by email to email@example.com
