Harmony Conference

The Harmony Conference, hosted by the Sustainable Food Trust in July, was a wonderful event. Inspired by the Prince of Wales’s book ‘Harmony, A New Way of Looking at Our World’, the conference discussed how Harmony principles manifest in food, agriculture, education, health and music. Films were made of the many fascinating sessions – including my presentation with Nick Mayhew entitled “Reconciling Systemic Discord”.

Harmony at the Oxford Real Farming Conference 2018

The conference touched on a multitude of themes beginning with the principles themselves and extending to the circular economy, the farm ecosystem, the integration of food production and nature conservation, the role of education, science and spirituality, harmony in farm architecture, and the role of faith communities in farming, to name but a few.

Gaye Donaldson (Systemic Constellations Facilitator) discussed systemic discord and how it might be possible to unlock some of the barriers to change that are preventing significant progress within our current farming system.
