Towards Sustainable Growing media sets out Knight’s thoughts on the work of the Task Force to date and the challenges ahead as well as presenting a draft roadmap that shows how his proposals can be taken forward into actions.

Part 1 of the report is a personal take by Knight on the current state of the debate and the challenges ahead.

Part 2 focuses on setting out emerging messages and observations building on the work of the Task Force focussed around a series of consensus points, although it highlights both areas of agreement and areas where it has not been possible to come to a consensus on the detail.

Finally, Part 3 sets out a draft roadmap building on an exercise undertaken by the Task Force at its meeting on 11 May.

Feedback must be received by 30 September to growingmedia@defra.gsi.gov.uk
