Event description
Join Suffolk Wildlife Trust for the county's first Nature Summit

About this Event

Despite our best efforts, Suffolk's wildlife and wild places continue to decline. It's clear we need a Wilder Suffolk, but we can't do it on our own.

Join us to discuss what a wilder Suffolk could and should look like and how, together, we can make it happen. Speakers include, newly appointed Chair of Natural England, Tony Juniper CBE, biologist, writer and People’s Manifesto for Wildlife contributor, Dr Amy-Jane Beer, marine and plastics campaigner, Bex Lynam, organic farmer John Pawsey and urban wildlife specialist, Ali North. There will also be an opportunity to hear from some of the county's leading young conservationists.

Panel discussions and talks will feature key topics such as conservation in the farmed, urban and marine landscapes, the importance of inclusion in environmental issues and the views of young people. Critically, we will examine the role of government in forming strong environmental legislation post-Brexit and are pleased to say that we will be joined by MP for Ipswich, Sandy Martin and Defra Minister and Suffolk Coastal MP Dr Therese Coffey who will offer their insight and views.

Internationally renowned street artist and conservationist ATM will be painting throughout the evening and talks will be followed with live music from Fishclaw.

The evening will be hosted by BBC Suffolk's Jon Wright.

The Nature Summit is free to attend, but please consider making a donation at the time of booking to help cover our costs.
