Our Holme Festival: Climate change and National Parks: from threat to opportunity? University of Huddersfield

22nd October 2019 - 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

Over the past year we’ve taken part in a community project based around the River Holme. We’re celebrating the success of this project with a day of talks from industry leading experts on all things river related.

Climate change and National Parks: from threat to opportunity? is a talk by Andrew McCloy, Chairman, Peak District National Park Authority.

National Parks are designated for their high landscape value, but from fires to flooding these sensitive habitats are already suffering the impacts of climate change. However, this vulnerability also suggests a way forward. Britain’s national parks are uniquely placed to deliver key messages and shape low carbon lifestyles among our 90 million visitors each year. Find out how, with the right tools and resources, our Parks can and should be a national leader in responding to climate change.
