Habitat Matters Webinar: Glasgow: “COPin or COPit"

Thursday, 28 October 2021 - 12:30pm to 1:45pm

The Habitats Matters campaign has taken us from Bristol to Glasgow. Our journey has shown us that there is increased public engagement in issues associated with biodiversity loss – but there needs to be more. Incorporating natural based solutions into design and biodiversity net gains increases our connection with nature with beneficial impacts on our physical and mental health.

We must inspire the 50% of the population who are disengaged with biodiversity loss and drive key policy changes so that our government can demonstrate how the UK will achieve our collective ambition to save nature.

For this last session we are inviting a multi-generational cross section of society and leaders in the field to outline their one big idea to inspire action for nature.

We will explore:

  • How we inspire the 50% of the population who are disengaged with biodiversity loss
  • The key policy changes needed for the the UK to achieve our collective ambition
