Wed 18 November 2015,

David Goode (author of Nature in Towns and Cities), Mathew Frith (London Wildlife Trust) and Georgia Stokes (Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust) ask whether nature in cities is in safe hands; look at how we promote more involvement in wildlife in cities; and examine the conflicts of interest in promoting nature in cities and how they can be overcome. Chaired by Jane Memmott, University of Bristol.

Part of Festival of the Future City: Nature-Rich Cities

One of the great benefits of the current renewal of cities is the potential to make them nature-rich. This strand of the festival, organised in association with Avon Wildlife Trust, will explore how to integrate nature in urban living, design and planning, and debate the challenges of making our urban landscapes wildlife-friendly, both to protect existing wildlife and to attract more.
