AGM and Discovery Day 2019 - Cornwall’s Wilder Future
About the event
The world is waking up to the climate change and ecological breakdown crisis. Environmental awareness is increasing at a pace never seen before and demands to help nature recover are high on the agenda. So how do we help nature recover?
Are Cornwall’s wild places enough – should they become Wilder Places? Is rewilding an answer? How can we all become Wilder People and take action to create a Wilder Cornwall? What does Cornwall’s Wilder Future look like? Join us for talks and lively discussion. Cornwall Wildlife Trust will be at Heartlands this year, a World Heritage Site Gateway in Cornwall, and set in the shadow of an iconic Cornish engine house. Heartlands is a visionary social enterprise project with a regional and national audience, that goes out of their way to champion local innovation and environmental sustainability.
Please note, from 10am to 10.30am we hold the Annual General Meeting of Cornwall Wildlife Trust 2019 which is open to current members only and free to attend - no need to book for just the AGM. Discovery Day begins at 11am which is open to all and can be booked below.
