Event description

Description

Met Talks is a new lecture series for Manchester Metropolitan University alumni, hosted by leading academics from across the University. The series is designed to continue lifelong learning, create networking opportunities and reconnect alumni.

Professor Phil Wheater presents 'Benefits and challenges of managing urban greenspace'

Most urban dwellers look favourably on the greenspace that lies close to their homes or places of work, few realise the richness of the wildlife that can be supported by such environments. Nor do many of us understand the different benefits, pressures, opportunities and challenges that are involved in designing, maintaining and enhancing such spaces.

This talk presents a wide ranging tour of the different types of space and considers conflicts and resolutions to these issues with reference to work carried out by researchers at Manchester Metropolitan University.
