International Conservation and Sustainability: The Role of UK Higher Education
Following an introduction from Professor Richard Davies, Pro-Vice Chancellor, Global, at Newcastle University, our high profile guests from the CBD Secretariat, UNEP, the UK government, industries and academia will be discussing how we can best harness the UK’s unique expertise in people-oriented conservation science to support the development of principles, policies and practices that meet CBD goals in the UK and partner countries, in an equitable, socially-just and inclusive way.
As part of this event, E.J. Milner-Gulland, Tasso Leventis Professor of Biodiversity at the University of Oxford, Co-Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Wildlife Trade and founder of the CASCADE initiative, chaired a panel of high-level end-users of academic input on environmental issues.
This event, co-hosted with the All Party Parliamentary Group on International Conservation, was held for the launch of an exciting new partnership among UK higher education institutions (HEIs). This partnership, CASCADE*, aims to use the country’s world-leading expertise in people-focused biodiversity conservation to support the development of principles, policies and practices that meet biodiversity goals in the UK and globally in an equitable, socially-just and inclusive way.
