Purpose of the presentations

Sustainability West Midlands and Fit for the Future Network partnered together on an event to explore the importance of biodiversity in sustainability and tackling climate change. We shared case studies of practical projects, introduced the 25 Year Environment Plan and had a wonderful tour of the Field Studies Council’s successful biodiversity schemes. This event allowed delegates to:

–         Understand how biodiversity projects can support organisations to become more environmentally sustainable

–         Hear examples from organisations already delivering practical projects

–         Look at a project first hand and take lessons learnt back to their own context

–         Network with a range of peers tackling similar issues

–         Ask lots of questions!


“Very wide range of attendees – great to see good gender balance and many younger people too.”“The knowledge that many groups & organisations exist with a drive to improve biodiversity in these challenging times.”
