24 September, 2015 - Making London nature-smart

Time: 09:30:00 - 18:00:00

This one-day symposium will focus around three key themes which will be integral to gaining a better knowledge about the habitats and species present in London, and how these are important in our urban environment. We will hear about how biodiversity is currently being monitored in London and how best to engage with London’s citizens and decision-makers. Finally, we will consider new ways to monitor biodiversity and understand people's relationships to nature, including using new technologies and citizen scientists. Organised by ZSL, Imperial College's Grand Challenges in Ecosystems and the Environment initiative, and the Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research, UCL

Location: The Meeting Rooms, Zoological Society of London, Regent’s Park,, London, NW1 4RY
