  5. Signpost Series: November 2021

In association with Teagasc ConnectED, Dairy Sustainability Ireland, and Food Drinks Ireland Skillnet, the National Rural Network is hosting a series of online webinars called the Signpost Series.

The webinars target those interested in the environment, sustainability, climate change, greenhouse gas emissions, the impact on agriculture, and science-based solutions and policies to mitigate the adverse effects and encourage the positive impact.

As agriculture is the primary land use in Ireland, farmers are responsible for farming sustainably to protect and enhance habitats and key resources. The webinars discuss the challenges and opportunities that face Irish and International agriculture.
