UK Habitat Management Plan Seminar
UK Habitat Management Plan Seminar: An overview of management planning, site operations and identifying your landscape assets.
Have you ever considered that every aspect of your daily life is made possible because of the services that our ecosystems provide? The land has always been shaped by those living and working within it. However, over the last 70 years the demands we place on the land have grown. We require a lot from our land – food, housing, energy, infrastructure and water. But we rely upon nature to provide clean air, moderate our climate, store and filter water, and provide large areas for wildlife.
We are facing uncertain times for our natural environments. Biodiversity, climate change, unsustainable methods of land management, and the over-development of land are issues that are all interconnected. Changes in one means increasing the pressures on the others, all resulting in negative consequences for human security and wellbeing.
As part of our latest project under the Centre for Nature & Society, we are delivering a range of workshops addressing the difficulties community groups and parish councils face when it comes to land use and management decisions. These events will run until early next year, and will provide the building blocks for future development of the centre.
This is the first session, which will cover an introduction to management plans, how they function in regards to practical work and the way in which you can identify the features of your landscape that will be beneficial for natural capital and ecosystem services.
For member groups of the pilot programme, this recorded seminar is free, however, there will be an additional fee of £15 for non-member groups.
