Event description

Description

Speaker: Ruth Davis - Head of policy at the RSPB, former director of Greenpeace.

Many have argued that the idea of Englishness is bound up with ideas of landscape and countryside that are backward looking, nostalgic and have little relevance to the future. In contrast, Ruth Davis, a leading figure in the green movement, argues that understanding the deep connections between ourselves, where we live and our environment are key to mobilising popular support for sustainability and tackling climate change.

Refreshments: Cash bar between 6.15 - 6.45pm

Location: The Stripe Complex, The University of Winchester, Winchester, Hampshire, SO22 4NR.

The Stripe Complex is located on the King Alfred Campus along Sparkford Road.

Carparking: If driving please use the main car park, which is the 4th turning on the left along Sparkford Road (marked main car park). Once parked, follow signs to the Stripe building. If the main car park is full, further parking is available if you leave the car park, turn right on Sparkford Road, then take the first left. (Medecroft). Parking is free of charge and in high demand, we advise delegates to arrive in plenty of time to avoid disappointment
