Manifesto Priorities for 2019 General Election
As the UK prepares for a general election on 12 December 2019, here’s what the Soil Association is calling for in party manifestos.
So far, governments have failed to join the dots between the interconnected climate crisis, the nature crisis and the dietary health crisis. We know the future of farming and land use lies at the heart with a huge opportunity to tackle climate change, restore nature and soil health and normalise healthy diets, but we must act now. The next ten years are crucial.
This election could bring a chance to reshape the future of food and farming
We often hear that organic can’t feed the world, but this is wrong.
New scientific modelling has shown a future is possible where farming responds to climate change, phases out pesticides and restores vital biodiversity, whilst providing enough food and a healthy diet for a growing population.
