BRICtalks: Greening and biodiversity net gain for marginal vacant and derelict land

February 10, 2021
Event: 25 February 2021, 10:00–10:45

Dr Stephanie Wray, Director of RSK Biocensus and its subsidiary Nature Positive, will be joining the Brownfield Research and Innovation Centre (BRIC) on 25 February for the latest event in its BRICtalks webinar series: Greening and biodiversity net gain for marginal vacant and derelict land. The impending Environment Act will require developers in England to deliver biodiversity net gain for new developments, so this virtual event will examine the natural-capital value of brownfield land and how vacant and derelict sites can be used to develop valuable and biodiverse communities.

Stephanie is an ecologist and a biodiversity expert with more than 25 years’ experience in the assessment of impacts on the natural environment. She specialises in businesses’ impacts on biodiversity, natural capital and ecosystem services. A past president of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM), Stephanie is Chair of CIEEM’s Strategic Policy Panel that co-ordinates the institute’s policy activities throughout the UK and Ireland. She is regularly called on to provide advice to ministers, select committees and government departments on aspects of policy regarding the natural environment.

During this free webinar, Stephanie will explain the natural-capital value of brownfield land, will look at the ways in which we can determine the best potential reuse of vacant and derelict sites and will provide case studies on biodiversity pre- and post-restoration.

The event is aimed at all businesses and organisations associated with the ownership, use and development of brownfield sites, including SMEs located on or relocating to brownfield land. Participants will be able to ask questions, chat with the experts or arrange one-to-one discussions with members of the BRIC team.

BRICtalks is a series of events created by the Brownfield Research and Innovation Centre at the University of Wolverhampton, UK. The centre supports the regeneration and reuse of brownfield sites for social, domestic and business purposes.
