Monday June the 3rd 6.30 – 9.30pm. Espresso Library, East Road, Cambridge. CB1 1BG.
This May, the Landscape Institute marks its 90th birthday. To help celebrate this important year, LIEE will host an evening with Merrick Denton-Thompson, recent past president of the Landscape Institute. Merrick will give a presentation about the government’s 25 year Environment Plan, the draft Environment Bill, and what might eventually replace the EU Common Agricultural Policy.
This government is the first to commit to leaving the environment in a better state than we inherited it. The 25 Year Environment Plan, published in January 2018, set out the Governments long-term approach to protecting and improving the natural world – our natural capital.
The Environment Bill will be an essential step to achieving this. It will put environmental ambition and accountability at the very heart of government to help make good on our commitment to leave the natural world in a better condition than we found it. Around this new green governance, it is proposed that direct action will be taken to address the biggest environmental priorities of our age: air quality; the protection and enhancement of our landscapes, wildlife and habitats; more efficient handling of resources and waste, and better management of our surface, ground and waste water.
For the landscape of the UK and for those who manage, maintain and care for it, this might well be the most important chunk of legislation for many years!
Join us at the Espresso Library, East Road, Cambridge from 6.30 – 9.30pm on Monday June 3rd for a stimulating talk and discussion with food and drinks available at this relaxed and relaxing venue.
