Biodiversity 2020: The Challenge for Local Authorities and Public Bodies

Central London
Thursday 14th March 2013

Biodiversity is the variety of all life on our planet. Recognising that a healthy, well functioning natural environment is the foundation of sustained economic growth, the government is striving to put the value of nature at the heart of decision making - in government departments, local authorities, communities and businesses.

Building on the Natural Environment White Paper (the first for over 20 years), 'Biodiversity 2020: A strategy for England's wildlife and ecosystem services' has at its core the objective to halt biodiversity loss. Crucially, local authorities and other public bodies have an important role to play in achieving this aim.

This special symposium provides an invaluable opportunity for local authorities, environment organisations, developers, third sector organisations and other key stakeholders to examine the government's latest policy initiatives and explore practical solutions to preserve biodiversity and protect our natural environment.

I am pleased to advise you that we offer a 20% early registration discount off the standard delegate rates for all bookings received by 11th January 2013.
