BRITAIN'S LEADING EDGE
Powering the UK
Feeding the UK
The lungs of the UK
Britain’s Leading Edge is a collaboration of rural upper-tier local authorities
without major cities. We are reframing the story of the contribution
that rural regions can make to a sustainable national economy.
We can power the UK! Peripheral regions of the UK are the energy powerhouses of tomorrow, with our rich natural capital capable of producing clean, reliable, renewable energy for the entire country.
We can feed the UK! Increasing Britain’s food supply chain resilience will be even more critical in years to come. Much of the UK’s food and drink sector is based within Britain’s Leading Edge areas.
We are the lungs of the UK! Residents of rural parts of the country are custodians of natural public spaces. We play a vital role in taking carbon out of the air and safely storing it.
