LI CPD: Greener Recovery Festival
22 Mar 2021
Day 5. 1 Opening & Keynote Session: A national Nature Recovery Network – Why and how?
The UK is one of the most Nature-depleted countries on Earth. As the conservation agenda shifts from protection to embrace recovery, a national network of Nature-rich areas must be a central plank of how we deliver. A range of new approaches can achieve what’s needed, so long as we have an
integrated plan of action. This session will provide an understanding of what the Nature Recovery Network is, and how it will be delivered and how the
conservation agenda is changing, to embrace a much more integrated approach delivering multiple benefits.
