In this research project we experimented with an approach to bringing rural communities together to discuss net zero in the context of agriculture and food. We sought to create spaces for respectful dialogue, where people could discuss and deliberate topics that can sometimes be contentious and polarising. We selected two rural counties with a high proportion of land used for livestock farming (given that the pressure for change often falls on the ruminant livestock sector), yet geographically distant and with distinct features: Cornwall and Cumbria. This project generates new methodological insights through adapting a city-oriented approach for rural settings, and generates knowledge through co-producing local agri-food net zero solutions.
