Day 1 – Engaging Environments: Working With Research

1:30PM – 2:30PM
23rd October
Garden Room | Clifton Pavilion

As practitioners, we rely heavily on the latest research to inform conservation action and underline environmental messages. Whilst some researchers are already actively involved in engaging with the public, many are not. Are there ways that we can work with, learn from, and inspire our research colleagues, building strong programmes to connect people and the environment? This session brought the latest thinking from Engaging Environments, a year-long programme that explored these themes across the UK, and provided delegates with an opportunity to help inform the next phase of public engagement with environmental research.
