NATURE'S RECOVERY: CHANGING HOW WE THINK ABOUT CONSERVATION

Tuesday 15 October: 7:00pm - 9:00pm

David Attenborough Building, Seminar Room, New Museums Site, CB2 3QZ

The Cambridge Conservation Initiative's Endangered Landscape Programme (ELP) provides inspiration for a future in which biodiversity and natural processes are restored to Europe's degraded lands, establishing resilient, more self-sustaining ecosystems. Working in partnership with local communities, its funded projects are creating large, connected landscapes that allow species to adapt to environmental stresses and promote the development of local economies and sustainable livelihoods. The ELP is generously supported by the Arcadia Fund and has eight projects across Europe, including two in the UK.

Even closer to home, the National Trust's Wicken Fen Vision is a 100 year plan to deliver landscape-scale restoration by creating a diverse environment for wildlife and people. Less than 1% of original fen survives in East Anglia, and the Vision aims to enlarge the reserve to 53km2, giving space back to nature. Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the project continues to expand the fen, creating a healthy, natural and beautiful environment for both people and wildlife.

Join experts from the ELP and Wicken Fen to find out more about the future for conservation on a landscape scale.
