Transformative Change – What does this approach to conservation mean for the UK?

The British Ecological Society’s policy team, in partnership with the University of York, is hosting a Pie and a Pint (PAAP) night in York on Wednesday, 20 November from 4.30-7.15pm.


The event will kick off with short talks from experts with views on what transformative change could mean for conservation in the UK. This will be followed by a short Q and A after which you will get a chance to express your views in an informal setting in the workshop-style discussions.

After the group work, there will be a chance to catch up with colleagues over a free pie and a pint. A blog of the event and a report capturing the key points and recommendations made by speakers and attendees will be made available on the BES website. The event is free but places are limited- book your ticket here.

About Pie and a Pint events

The “Pie and a Pint” meetings were started by the BES-Scottish Policy Group, the idea being for scientists and policy makers to meet together informally to discuss a relevant key policy topic over a pint and some food (it is all free, being paid for by the BES).
