I am looking for willing volunteers to work with me to move ADEPT’s work on ‘natural capital’ up to the next level.
We did some really good work last year – the Environment Board agreed a draft Natural Capital & Heritage Policy Statement, and there was a lively and successful workshop at the ADEPT Annual conference in November where we had speakers from Natural England, the Natural Capital Committee, a National Park and a council. The challenge now is to help with further thinking to refine the Policy Statement, agree what our immediate priorities should be, and then start to translate our ambitions into practice.
This is a great opportunity to work with ADEPT colleagues from around the country to add value and move natural capital up the policy agenda. If you are interested please get in touch and join the Natural Capital & Heritage Working Group, I am really keen to find a few more members and someone to lead and chair the group.
