Horizon Debates: Is technology a force for good in environmentally sustainable food production?


This was the first in a new three part series of Horizon Debates, hosted by Green Alliance, exploring controversial issues around the future of land, food and the environment in the UK.
 
At this event a panel of experts from both sides of the argument debated the impact of novel foods and new agricultural technologies on the UK’s natural environment, their social acceptability and the ethical implications.
 
Panel:
Simon Blackmore, head of robotics, Harper Adams University
Helen Browning, chief executive, Soil Association
Robin Grove-White, professor emeritus of environment and society, Lancaster University
Alastair Cooper, organic farmer and senior investment director at ADM Capital  

Chaired by Christine Tacon, the UK's groceries code adjudicator and former managing director of Co-operative Farms.
