Beyond GM


Beyond GM campaigns raise awareness of, and public engagement with, issues around genetic modification in food and farming and agroecological alternatives. Although grounded in established science and academia their campaigns, which include GM Free Me, The Letter from America and Our Food Our Future, are creative and accessible to everyone.

At the festival they will be talking to people and providing information leaflets about sustainable food and farming. As an interactive activity they will be taking photos for the GM Free Me photo wall, which already features photos of more than 2,100 people from across the country who want the UK to be GM free.

They will also have a petition from their Mums group, Mums Say No to GMOs, to keep GM out of the animal feed supply.

The GM Free Me campaign has the support of many high profile supporters including conservationist Jane Goodall, gardener Alyls Fowler, MP Caroline Lucas, chef Valentine Warner and fashion designer Vivienne Westwood.

Other supporters include journalist George Monbiot, photographer Mary McCartney, organic entrepreneur Jo Wood, chefs the Hemsley Sisters,  DJ Don Letts, musician Daddy G and Bez from the Happy Mondays, UK 2014 Mr Universe Barny Du Plessis, MP Zac Goldsmith, journalist Lucy Siegel and dancer Anwar Russell.
