The importance of nature and biodiversity in the context of climate change is emphasised this month, which marks this year's Convention on Biological Diversity in Beijing.

To recognise this occasion, our event aims to support our members ensure that all its projects seek to have a net positive impact on nature and biodiversity. By using the site at Rushden Lakes, we will look at how biodiversity has been built into a commercial site and have an opportunity to see it first-hand.


Speaker: Katie King, BCN Wildlife Trust

- An insight into how the site at Rushden was set up via the partnership with the BCN Wildlife Trust

- How it is now managed to ensure that nature and biodiversity continue to be supported and enhanced, and lessons learnt along the way


We will also hear from other members about their projects and case studies, and will have the chance to go on a tour of the nature reserve.

Finally for those with their net zero hat on we will also hear more about the building in which we will be holding the event.


Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Please bring appropriate footwear for a tour of the reserve (and potentially wet weather gear).
