Landworkers’ Alliance

We are a union of farmers, growers, foresters and land-based workers with a mission to improve the livelihoods of our members and create a better food and land-use system for everyone.

We work for a future where producers can work with dignity to earn a decent living and everyone can access local, healthy and affordable food, fuel and fibre – a food and land-use system based on agroecology and food sovereignty that furthers social and environmental justice.

Food, Farming and the Climate Crisis


What’s the issue:
Our food and farming systems account for around 30% of UK Greenhouse Gas emissions and are way off target to reach net zero emissions by 2030. We need urgent action that recognises agriculture and the food system as a complex whole and focusses change on localising our food systems, supporting agroecolgical production and putting an end to unsustainable practices whilst ensuring everyone has access to healthy, affordable and culturally appropriate food.
What are we doing:
We’ve been lobbying and campaigning for policy to make our food and farming net zero through localising our food systems and supporting agroecological farming. And we are working with members, community groups and allied organisations to organise a march for Farming, Food and Climate Justice in October.
How can I help:
Check out our briefing on Food, Farming and the Climate Crisis. Join us in London on the 5th October to march for Food, Farming and Climate Justice.
