Field Visits
Field visits
Three field visits are integrated in the scientific programme, involving one half day and two full day excursions to locations in west County Galway, County Mayo and County Clare. They will provide opportunities to view a number of different landscapes, examples of challenges to the sustainability of rural systems and responsive strategies in operation. We shall meet with agency personnel, local residents and farmers. Colleagues who have researched the areas and issues in question will provide commentary also.
