      Future Focus - Creating a buzz for the environment - University of Exeter (Cornwall)

      Cornish businesses, farmers and conservationists: working together to create a buzz for the environment. The University of Exeter (Cornwall) invites you to a morning focused around Cornish businesses, farmers and conservationists engaging with innovative and unique solutions to protect our outstanding natural environment. With the survival of an alarming 30% of global species threatened by unsustainable human activity, finding collaborative solutions to protect wildlife and prevent further environmental destruction is essential.  Bees are important pollinators and many wild flowers and crops are essential for a healthy environment, healthy population and healthy economy. At the University of Exeter, we are committed to finding long-term solutions to protect pollinator habitats, improve farmer livelihoods across the UK, engage with landowners and conservationists to plan conservation actions and collaborate with businesses to successfully enrich our environment for people and nature. Please join us for a morning of exciting speakers, including Cornish businesses, renowned NGOs and University of Exeter academics. We invite you to come along and discover what other businesses, farmers and conservation groups have done to create long-lasting and positive socio-environmental change around Cornwall. Come and find out how BEE-STEWARD – an innovative computer programme of virtual bees in digital landscapes – can help farmers and landowners make the most of their land for pollinator conservation and food production whilst contributing to your business’ green credentials. Combining our forces and experiences, let’s explore the environmental, social and economic challenges ahead to create a green future in which Cornish businesses thrive with nature.  There is no cost to attend this Future Focus Event; it is fully funded by the European Regional Development Fund.  Please note spaces are limited to 50 attendees only.
