Land Management – How Can It Help Us Reach Net Zero?
Tuesday 4th July, The Forum @ The Conduit, 6pm - 7:15pm
Join us to explore the crucial topic of land management in the pursuit of achieving net-zero emissions. This engaging conversation will feature prominent figures in environmental policy, architecture, and rewilding, offering diverse perspectives on how we can effectively address the challenges associated with land use.
Our speakers include Rachel Fisher, Deputy Director of Land Use Policy at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), activist architect Sarah Featherstone, and rewilding expert Lulu Urquhart. The conversation will be moderated by Piers Taylor, an influential figure in sustainable design and architecture.
The session will focus on the important role that nature can play in creating more liveable towns and cities. The Environment Act in 2021 laid the groundwork for Biodiversity Net Gain and the new Local Nature Recovery Strategies, which are already starting to have an impact on how designers and developers plan and shape places. The Climate Change Act and changes to building regulations are driving a shift in how architects approach both retrofitting existing places and building new ones.
This event offers a unique opportunity to gain insights from experts at the forefront of the discussion, who can explore practical solutions and innovative approaches to managing our land sustainably. Be part of the conversation that shapes our future as we work towards a more resilient and environmentally responsible society.
