At this event, hosted by the ESRC’s The UK in a Changing Europe (UKiCE) Initiative, leading practitioners will debate the findings of a landmark independent report on the implications of a Brexit for the UK’s environment.

The EU has had a profound impact upon UK environmental policy and ‘Brexit’ raises the prospect of considerable change in the future.  This ESRC funded report addresses the need for clear, balanced and systematic evidence on the implications of EU membership for the UK’s environment.

It will be introduced by Professor Anand Menon, Director of UKiCE and chaired by Mathew Spencer, Director of Green Alliance.  The panel will be:

  • Dr Charlotte Burns, University of York;
  • Professor Andrew Jordan, University of East Anglia;
  • Mike Clark, CEO RSPB;
  • Nick Mohlo, Executive Director Aldersgate Trust;
  • Philip Rothwell, Head of Corporate and Public Affairs for the Wildlife Trusts;
  • David Nussbaum, CEO WWF

They will offer an impartial review of how the EU has affected the UK and the risks and opportunities in key post-referendum scenarios.  Attendance is free but registration is essential.  For more detail, click here.
