After two years online, ORFC 2023 will reunite the food and farming movement across the UK and beyond.
Over a hundred sessions are planned across six venues which will bring speakers from around the world together with the larger ORFC community to discuss issues around food and farming policy, land justice, the economic emergency, the financialisation of nature, community wellbeing, and the critical role farming plays in solving our ecological crises. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn about new (and old) agroecological practices and connect with others who share your vision of a fairer and more diverse food and farming system.
Can’t be in Oxford? Join us online
If you can’t make it to Oxford you can still join the conference and participate in the sessions by purchasing an online ticket. The three-day online conference will begin on the morning of Wednesday, January 4th. It will be a mix of live-streamed sessions from Oxford and online-only sessions with farmers, food producers, activists, academics, authors and many others across six continents.
Last year, 5,500 people joined us online from 125 countries. This year, we hope to bring many more into the wider ORFC community and give you the opportunity to connect with others working towards a similar agroecological vision around the world.
At £10 – £45, an online ticket remains – thanks to our many supporters – outstanding value. Once again, all delegates outside Western Europe, the US, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand can join us for free and we will be working with the interpretation collective, COATI, to ensure that sessions are as accessible as possible. Anything you miss will be recorded for you to catch up on, and each session will available for replay shortly after it has ended.
Book now! Tickets will sell out
Tickets for the in-person ORFC go very quickly and space is limited, so book now to guarantee your place for January. Any in-person ticket will automatically give you access to both conferences so whatever online talks you miss while you’re in Oxford, you can catch up with once it’s all over.
To make sure ORFC 2023 reflects the radical and diverse community it represents, this year we have refreshed our ticket model. This sliding scale will help to ensure that ORFC remains an equitable platform.
