Resilient Landscapes for People, Nature and Climate: Connecting science and practice communities to create a roadmap for the future.

The British Ecological Society is delighted to organise this symposium in collaboration with the Ecological Continuity Trust, Natural England, National Trust, RSPB, Woodland Trust, WWF, and the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology.

Many organisations are working with landowners to create an ever-increasing number of large landscape projects to secure a more resilient future for our climate, people and nature. Most are multi-faceted intending multiple outcomes crossing the environmental, social and economic spectrum.

This 2-day BES symposium at the University of Birmingham supports the creation of a more cohesive community around large-scale land, freshwaters and coastal/marine systems and is the first of a series of connected events delivered by our partnership (which is open to new members) to encourage the sharing of best practice, promote more standardised and effective monitoring and evaluation approaches and support the development of new projects to enhance our evidence base and ensure the most impactful outcomes.

This event is part of a series BES activities to take forward two of the five research priorities identified by the community in our “The Future of Ecological Research in the UK: A research agenda for the next 25 years”. These two priorities are Living Labs and Wholescapes.
