BREXIT and UK ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

It's specifically aimed at providing early-career ecologists with the know-how and ideas they (we!) will need to deal with Brexit, and all the uncertainty that comes with it. We'll kick things off with two great speakers- Dame Georgina Mace and Prof Charlotte Burns- who will share their thoughts on what could happen over the next few years. The rest of the day will focus on bringing together scientists and policymakers to chart some sort of path through the choppy waters- anything from establishing our priorities for safeguarding the existing EU environmental protections through to what could go into the new Environment Bill.

It's on Wednesday 20th February, 10am - 4pm, at Charles Darwin House in London.

Anyone involved in ecology at an early-career stage is welcome- be they students, post-docs or lecturers at universities, or those working at NGOs, policy, the civil service, government agencies, research agencies, consultancies, etc.

The deadline for registration is the 8th Feb- just 2 weeks' time! Please do pass this on to anyone you think would be interested!
