      Transformative Change – What does this approach to conservation mean for the UK?

      The British Ecological Society's policy team, in partnership with the University of York, is hosting a Pie and a Pint night in York.   Doors open at 4pm for 4:30 start   The event will kick off with short talks from experts with views on what transformative change could mean for conservation in the UK. This will be followed by a short Q and A after which you will get a chance to express your views in an informal setting in the workshop-style discussions.  After the group work, there will be a chance to catch up with colleagues over a free pie and a pint. A blog of the event and a report capturing the key points and recommendations made by speakers and attendees will be made available on the BES website.  Chair: Prof Chris Thomas, University of York Confirmed speakers: ·       Prof Callum Roberts, University of York ·       Rachael Brice, CEO  Yorkshire Wildlife Trust ·       Dr Ioan Fazey, University of York   Disabled access:  If disabled access is required please let us know in advance and this will be accommodated.  #PAAP @BESPolicy @BES_ScotPol About Pie and a Pint events The “Pie and a Pint” meetings were started by the BES-Scottish Policy Group, the idea being for scientists and policy makers to meet together informally to discuss a relevant key policy topic over a pint and some food (it is all free, being paid for by the BES).  Photo © Kumweni /Flickr
