Event Description

A two-day conference, organised by the Sustainable Food Trust and hosted by Llandovery College, a participant in the Harmony pilot schools initiative.

In his book, ‘Harmony, A New Way of Looking at Our World’, The Prince of Wales shares his insights about the timeless laws and principles which permeate everything around and within us, an understanding of which can enable us to make better sense of the world in which we find ourselves. He also suggests that we will be best placed to address the climatic, ecological and public health challenges of our time, if our actions are informed by a deep understanding of these principles.

During the conference, the keynote speakers will explore the ways in which Harmony Principles manifest in food, agriculture and other spheres, including the environment, education, health and music. A range of parallel sessions will follow, in which speakers will share their insights about principles of Harmony in food and farming and other related fields. On the afternoon of the second day of the conference, there will be a series of field trips to local producers.

About the Organiser

The Sustainable Food Trust
The Sustainable Food Trust was founded by Patrick Holden in 2011 in response to the worsening human and environmental crises that are associated with the vast majority of today’s food and farming systems.

His observation was that, for all of the hard work of food and environmental organisations over the last half century or so, there were still a number of major barriers preventing large scale uptake of sustainable food production and healthy diets. These include the lack of an enabling policy and economic environment for sustainable food production and consumption; a tendency towards reductionist and siloed thinking amongst scientists and some campaigning organisations; and a myriad of conflicting messages, often perpetuated by those with vested interests, leading to considerable confusion amongst consumers and policymakers alike about what to eat to be healthy whilst at the same time supporting just and sustainable food systems.

Our vision is for food and farming systems which nourish the health of the planet and its people.

Our mission is to accelerate the transition to more sustainable food and farming systems.

To achieve this, we work catalytically on a global scale to influence and enhance the work of other organisations, rather than replicating existing initiatives.
