Where: feeder events 2017 @Sherwood, Doncaster, Sheffield; major 2018 symposium in Sheffield plus regional site visits – Sherwood, Humberhead Levels NNR, Pennine Moors, Dearne Valley, National Forest.
With major challenges for the future in terms of climate change, land-use, biodiversity, heritage, economy and community, we are bringing together a unique group of experts, academics, researchers and practitioners to debate the issues.
The focus will be on a wilder and more connected future to halt the decline of species and environmental quality, yet recognising the cultural nature and heritage value of many landscapes. This series of meetings emerges from over 30 years of seminars and conferences organised by our team and partners.
The exemplar of this unconstrained vision extends across a region of approximately 160 square miles, encompassing two UK Government regions and seven local authorities: true landscape-scale conservation. Importantly, the event will stress the need to set the context for re-construction – to understand the past, to inform the present, and to guide the future.
