Event description

Description

With Dr Olivia Dee, Newcastle University

Urban commons are some of the largest and most iconic green spaces in towns and cities across the UK. Researchers from Newcastle University are leading a three-year interdisciplinary project to investigate how Newcastle's precious Town Moor, and other green space sites, can be protected. By exploring the complex legal and cultural identity of the UK’s many urban commons, they aim to develop new strategies to shape their future use in towns and cities, bearing in mind the needs of both wildlife and people. To this end, they are interested in hearing the views of the Natural History Society of Northumbria members.

Join us for a Tuesday Teatime talk and an opportunity to share your views as part of the Wastes and Strays Project.

Free for NHSN members. Non-members £5. If you would like to join NHSN, please go to http://www.nhsn.ncl.ac.uk/join-us/become-a-member/

Please note that we have a NO REFUNDS policy for ticket cancellations, except in cases where the event is cancelled by us.
