Making Brexit work for ecology and conservation science
This high profile scientific evening will highlight the key role UK science plays in helping our society address current and upcoming environmental challenges.
Climate change is one of the many critical environmental issues for science and innovation that the government needs to consider when it enters into its negotiations. This event will make the point that the UK already possesses a world-class scientific community capable of informing governmental decisions in the face of environmental uncertainty and willing to help: it will argue that this national asset needs to be protected and the interests of science and the environment are not lost in the noise of the wider immigration, sovereignty and trade debates.
