What can we do now to help our countryside be more resilient to change?

This is an online event hosted on Zoom. Bookers are sent a link in advance giving access.

Part of our Changing climate, changing landscapes online event series.

Our countryside encompasses a range of environments including farmland, marsh, heathland, moorland, woods, forest and mountains. Climate change is altering the way we manage and protect these landscapes and threatening those who live there.

As the climate changes, what do we need to do to protect biodiversity while ensuring we also protect local communities? From rewilding to regenerating, what can we do now to help our countryside be more resilient to change?

Drawing on discussions from the annual climate change conference COP26 and the latest knowledge about climate change adaptation, explore how we can manage environmental change in countryside landscapes across Britain, and how we can make those who live in these landscapes more resilient.

Chaired by Professor Rick Stafford of Bournemouth University, this panel includes Professor Nicki Whitehouse (Doctor at Glasgow University, Professor at Plymouth University and part of the Reconstructing the Wildscape project) as well as representatives from the Rewilding Coombeshead project. Full panel details are available here.

In partnership with The Institute for the Modelling of Socio-Environmental Transitions, Bournemouth University.
