Workshop 3: Bright spots at the science-policy-practice interface – what makes a success story?

 

Date: Monday 18th November 2019 from 2.00pm to 4.30pm

Venue: The David Attenborough Building, Cambridge, CB2 3QZ, Main Seminar Room

The workshop will bring together experts and practitioners from the NGO, science and policy sectors to highlight “bright spots” in conservation (i.e. examples where science has demonstrably influenced policy and practice) and to explore what made them a success.

An expert panel will include:

  • Dr Simon Brockington (Defra) – Panel Chair
  • Gayle Burgess (TRAFFIC, Society for Environment and Institution of Environmental Sciences)
  • Stephanie Good (University of Exeter)
  • Dr Susie Grant (British Antarctic Survey)
  • Edward Pollard (The Biodiversity Consultancy)

There will be opportunities for discussion and networking with the aim of linking experts within the Cambridge academic and conservation communities.
