Thursday, October 12, 2017 - 10:15 to 16:30
Central London

The beauty and biodiversity of the UK countryside, along with the productivity and quality of the nation’s £100bn food industry, are significantly dependent upon the abundance and sustainability of pollinating insect numbers. Approximately 75% of the world’s food crops are at least partially reliant upon pollination, as are nearly 90% of all wild flowering plants (IBES, 2017).

Workshop: Restoring Landscapes to Improve Freshwater Ecosystems: Digital Tools for Designing Green Infrastructure Networks (GINs)

Universidad de Cantabria, Santander, Spain

According to the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, Europe’s landscapes are the most altered and fragmented in the world due to its long history of urbanization, agriculture, river management and extensive rail and road transportation systems. This has led to impacted aquatic and riparian ecosystems, reduction in ecosystem services, loss of biodiversity and increased exposure to climate change.
