Around 130 delegates joined us at the Natural History Museum, London, on 9 November for the 2022 NBN Conference.

This was our first face to face Conference for three years and it was great to all be in the same room again! As usual, we welcomed delegates from a cross section of organisations including wildlife NGOs, academia, local environmental records centres, national and local recording schemes, country agencies, commercial companies and students all wanting to hear about how we, the NBN Trust and the Network, are “Making data work for nature”.

There were sixteen presentations including two keynote addresses. The first was given by Bryony Pound, Senior Associate and Impact Specialist at Dialogue Matters Ltd, and the second, the annual Sir John Burnett Memorial lecture, was given by Richard Benwell, Chief Executive of Wildlife and Countryside Link.

We also held the NBN Trust AGM and announced the winners and runners up in the NBN Awards for Wildlife Recording 2022.

PDFs of all of the presentations can be found on the NBN Conference 2022 – presentations page.
