Join us for the first ever Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Ecological Emergency Summit
The UK is one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world. And although Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly may look green and undoubtedly beautiful, we are in fact suffering local extinctions and nature is in decline. This is an ecological emergency.
The one-day summit will bring together key stakeholders from a wide range of sectors that are committed to act to reverse the decline in nature.
We’re inviting our local community groups, charities, businesses, land owners, land managers and public authorities to get involved. We will hear from high-profile speakers and will be showcasing local action at different scales and pledging to do more. There will be workshops to unlock barriers and explore ways we can all deliver for nature.
Later this year, COP15 will set a new global agenda to tackle biodiversity loss. But our conference aims to build a local coalition of partners who are committed to delivering change here in Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly.
There will be lots of opportunity to connect and network with each other throughout the day. Following a locally-produced lunch there will be a series of action-oriented workshops. A more detailed agenda will follow.
Whether or not you can make it on the day, make sure to let us know your pledge for nature.
Please note we are hoping this can be a live in-person event. Should any Covid restrictions re-emerge we will need to potentially restrict numbers and hold a hybrid event with some delegates joining online.
This event is organised by the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Nature Partnership
