6 October 12:30–1:15

Solar farms are an essential element of carbon reduction around the world, but how can we best make use of the spaces they occupy? This webinar will discuss how we can use these spaces dedicated to green energy production and think outside the box to ensure we are providing net benefits to biodiversity. It will then address how we might go about countering some of the recent negative rhetoric surrounding solar farms.
