Julia Aglionby, Professor of Practice, Centre for National Parks & Protected Areas, University of Cumbria, UK, was one of three guest speakers (alongside Professor Amy Dickman, University of Oxford and Iain Tolhurst MBE, Tolhurst Organic) at this seminar, part of the Grand Challenges Seminars 2024, which seeks to explore the challenges encountered by farmers and conservationists who may be seeking very different outcomes from areas of land. The seminar will attempt to examine these challenges and hear potential solutions from both academics and practitioners from different contexts. Core topics to be discussed include: traditional agricultural practices and how much they relate to current practices; economically feasible routes for sustainable farming and conflict mitigation strategies; farming requirements for populations and the negative effects of farming; how we change and develop policy to reflect sustainable practice; and nature based solutions that reflect biodiversity and conservation requirements. Julia is a Professor in Practice and focuses on the governance of common land and legal pluralism. She is also the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Penrith and Solway.
