Biodiversity Net Gain (NG) commitments by developers are opportunities to achieve real and long-lasting benefits for nature.  We want to help you learn how businesses are seeking NG and, by exploring the biodiversity messages we all use, to be more able to develop messages that inspire developers and others to do the right thing.
Our workshop will begin with an interactive session on positive communications, then short presentations followed by a panel discussion.  Our speakers are representatives from England's government nature conservation agency, London's leading wildlife charity, a multi-national contractor and one of the UK's foremost ecological consultancies.
We will share advice on how striking the right balance between positive messages and setting firm rules can result in NG that helps to achieve local and national conservation priorities.  We will present examples where business - charity partnerships benefit both wildlife and local communities, and show how ecosystem service valuations can encourage decision makers to adopt NG.

AV - projector, laptop and screen required for this session.
