How can environmental organisations work most effectively together to drive urgent, multisectoral change to resolve the global crisis of plastic pollution? By which innovative ways can environmental practitioners maximise engagement with a diverse range of communities? How can future UK agricultural practices be honed to ensure sufficient high-quality food is produced to meet growing demand whilst exerting minimal detrimental impacts on wildlife, the environment, and national net zero carbon emissions targets? What are the views and key policy recommendations of three diverse environmental sector organisations in response to the UK Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan? These are just a few of the pressing, complex and multisectoral environmental issues that are to be discussed at the Nottingham Environment Conference 2019 (NEC 2019), to be held on Monday 24th June at the University of Nottingham.
I will be there with the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust team and I am really looking forward to listening to the speakers, getting involved in the debates and sharing information with visitors.
