Description

About the series

Shed A Light is a series of talks that seek to present alternative framings of future human-nature interactions and the pragmatic solution pathways that we could take to get there.

By recognising the interlinkages between struggles for ecological, social and economic justice in addition to the desperate need for immediate societal transformation, Shed A Light aims to engage everyone with the green agenda and prompt broad-based discussions on sustainability issues.

Followed by a drinks reception on the main concourse from 6.30-7.30pm

‘What does Nature Do for Britain (Economy, Food Security, Public Health) and how can it do more of it?’
