The Role of Business in Creating a Wilder Future
December 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This text is taken from the Berks, Bucks, and Oxon Wildlife Trust.
The state of wildlife and the environment is hitting the headlines like never before. We know that nature is in trouble, and now more people are listening and ready to act. We also know that it is not too late to turn this around, however we need to find new ways of working towards nature’s recovery and that includes the world of commerce.
Hear how climate change and biodiversity loss will impact on your business and join us to help shape corporate solutions to tackle these key environmental concerns.
BBOWT’s Conservation Strategy Director, Dr Prue Addison, will chair our discussion and we will be joined by a panel of experts from both academia and business.
