Nuffield visit to Brussels
A group from the 2007 Nuffield farming scholars have just been on a trip to Brussels to gain an insight into how the European Union works. It was a very informative trip and we had some excellent speakers covering a wide range of topics including the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform, EU Environmental Policy, issues for farmers and producers in Hungary and Germany, the continuing GM debate, and consumer perception of food issues.
It has prepared us all for our travels - many begin in two weeks time going to China for a study tour.
We walked through the city taking in the feel of the cafe society and looking at the sights (photos above) and also enjoyed the Eurostar journey through the countryside of France (photo above) and Belgium.
