Northamptonshire Local Nature Partnership “Valuing Local Nature”
Posted on behalf of Prof Jeff Ollerton:
This free half day conference aims to highlight the true value that local nature provides to individuals, communities and businesses through ‘ecosystem services’. By adopting this approach, it is clear to see the cross sector benefits to public health, economic growth, flood risk management and more; and begs the question, “what does local nature do for you?”.
The conference is aimed at a broad cross section of stakeholders including local authority staff, portfolio holders, councillors, businesses, health professionals, community organisations and other environment NGOs.
Confirmed speakers include Dr Jim Rouquette at Natural Capital Solutions, and Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire Flood Risk Management Senior Advisor at the Environment Agency, Tom Lester. We will also be repeating our dynamic ‘quick-fire’ session where a dozen or so environmental bodies will identify what they will do next – feedback from 2015 was that this was very well-liked. There will be opportunities for audience questions too.
To register for the fourth Northamptonshire Local Nature Partnership half day conference on the 12th October 2016 at the University of Northampton, please follow the below link ASAP as places are limited. A full programme will be emailed out to delegates in due course.
