Green Recovery Wales

20th July 2020

A virtual festival of farming, food and nature

Join Green Recovery Wales from July 20th – 23rd for 4 days of activities, ideas and discussions focused on farming and land management, sustainable food systems, restoring wildlife and working together towards a greener future for Wales.

During this festival, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at the role that rural Wales can play in ensuring the well-being of this and future generations in Wales, tackling the climate and ecological crisis we face, talking to politicians, decision makers and innovators across the environment and farming sectors.

The events are all free to watch.

There is no need to book in advance for the vast majority of the events.

On the day there will be a link to click to watch the live stream of the discussions on YouTube. People will be able to submit questions beforehand via the website, or comment on YouTube (if the person has a YouTube account) as the discussion takes place.

There are a few activities which will need pre-booking (yoga and other practical activity sessions) and the links to book these will be up on the website.
