Reclaiming Wetland Values: Marsh, Mud and Wonder Stakeholder Day

A special Stakeholders Celebration Day is being held on Friday 31st Jan, 10 am to 5.30 pm, for which there are still a few spaces available.  If you would like to join us on this day to have the opportunity to be guided through a series of presentations, structured discussions and supported viewing of the exhibition materials, please RSVP HERE immediately to reserve your space, as they will be filled on a first come-first serve basis.  

The day will start at 10.00am with refreshments and a light lunch will be provided at midday. Attendees will get to explore how multi- and interdisciplinary contributions from natural and social sciences, economics, the arts (literary, visual and performance) and humanities can help to reveal the values of wetlands to inform management and policy. The exhibition uses a range of innovative and engaging media and includes work on mosquito ecology, saltmarsh capacity to influence coastal erosion and flooding, findings on the social and cultural value of wetland spaces, and economic valuations of wetlands.  This is a unique opportunity to engage with this ground-breaking research which aims to inform the future management of wetland environments.

Please note - after midnight on Sunday 26th January, we will be unable to cater for special dietary requirements, as we need to give final requirements list to the caterers on Monday 27th January.  However, the menu will be vegan.
