Habitat Matters invites you to their event

How have we COP to this?

About this event

With over 41% of species declining in the UK, it's never been more important to protect the UK's biodiversity and habitats to prevent future loss.

In this session, we will look at the threat to biodiversity as the built environment continues to threaten and even completely destroy crucial habitats. Specifically, we will look at aspects addressing the challenges in the built environment for habitats, how people can make a difference in lobbying for legislation to assist nature’s recovery, and in particular the challenge of delivering standards for biodiversity mitigation in the built environment.

Key Questions:

  • How have natural systems and biodiversity declined in the UK?
  • How has infrastructure increased over time since the industrial revolution?
  • Why is COP26 so important?
  • How can the UK become a leader in protective legislation?

Speaker panel:

This webinar forms part of the Habitat Matters series.
