Join us tomorrow evening at (6pm) for our free webinar! Creating Greener Communities: Why nature and biodiversity is vital

Nature and Biodiversity Webinar

Join us for a free webinar Thursday 17th March 2022 (6:00pm-7:30pm)  to hear from expert speakers and learn about why nature and biodiversity are so important to the functioning of our planet, and how you can maximise the opportunities on your doorstep to make Brent a greener, more biodiverse and healthier community for all.

Our speakers include:

Our climate is changing and our world is getting hotter. But have you ever stepped back to think, what do rising temperatures actually mean for all of the amazing nature, biodiversity and ecosystems that surround us?

Tackling the climate emergency also means tackling the ecological emergency which comes with it. Our ecosystems are precious and delicate, even small changes can have negative consequences. Rising temperatures and more extreme weather events in the future could have a catastrophic effect on wildlife habitats and biodiversity locally. Protecting nature and boosting biodiversity are key to the stability of the ecosystem and global climate.

At a local level in Brent we have 90 parks and green open spaces to enjoy, alongside pioneering bee corridors and wonderful wildflower meadows plus our ‘blue spaces’ - such as the waterways which exist within the borough, including the river which gives Brent its name!.Click here - register now
