Organiser's description (via AFN Network+):

The AFN Network+’s Second ‘Big Tent’ Event takes place in Sheffield on March 13th and 14th. The ‘Big Tent’ is the annual meeting of the Network and an opportunity for participants to hear from, and engage with, researchers, business leaders, policy-makers and voluntary organisations working for change in the agri-food system to meet the UK’s net zero 2050 goal. The programme is designed around inclusivity and involvement, to maximise opportunities for networking between participants, with a mix of keynote talks, panel sessions and breakout discussions. This year’s ‘Big Tent’ will review the main priorities for research and action for the agri-food system’s net zero transition, help shape the £600K second call for proposals for research and innovation and discuss the main ways that AFN Network+ activities can support members in advancing change over the next 18 months. The challenge is huge, the timescale is urgent, the work is serious, but our hope is to have fun along the way. Join us in the AFN Network+ and sign up for the ‘Big Tent’ below.

Attendance (including catering and an evening meal on 13 March) is free. Delegates must have an interest in the AFN Network+ and experience in the agri-food sector.
