About this Event

TIMES:

AGM: 10am-11am (free)

Conference: 11.30am- 4.30pm (£5 per ticket)

The world is waking up to the environmental catastrophe we face. Action is needed at all levels, globally and locally, to reverse wildlife declines and tackle the climate crisis. By 2030 the Wildlife Trust’s vision is that nature is fully on the road to recovery, wildlife is returning and ecosystems are restored. We know we need more people on nature’s side and more space for nature to thrive, but how will we achieve this and who will help us?

Join us and those who inspire us – our partners, our members, our champions and community leaders – as we set out our plan for a wilder future.
