University of Kent, Canterbury, Kent, CT2 7NZ
#L4L2018 will take place at the University of Kent, Canterbury from 24-26th July.
With a theme of Shaping the Long View, we expect informed, enthused and energised delegate participation for our plenary sessions, site visits, briefings, and social events.
Both the UK and the Welsh Governments have recently indicated their commitment to Protected Landscapes. Recognising this commitment, the NAAONB proposes that demonstrating and measuring the benefits of landscape management will be of crucial importance in the years ahead, and we are committed to widening discussion and debate around this issue.
We will be looking at how the work of the AONB Family network achieves clean air, clean and plentiful water, and thriving plants and wildlife. We will also investigate how we can help to reduce the risk of harm to people, the environment and the economy by using our natural resources in a more sustainable and efficient way. Our ultimate aim is to ensure that the natural beauty of AONBs is valued and secured and we will explore how connecting people with nature can enhance the beauty and heritage our natural environment for future generations.
The NAAONB is running Landscapes for Life Conference 2018 in association with the Kent Downs AONB Partnership who will be hosting the site visits.
#L4L2018 will be an excellent opportunity to meet and network with fellow landscape professionals from across the UK. Register for your place today.
