Workshop: Water stewardship and healthy ecosystems - Leeds

Date:

Time: to

Venue: 
Leeds - TBC

This workshop will share what BITC's leading members from a variety of sectors have been doing to support healthy ecosystems and water resources.

The economy depends on the natural environment landscape; from the soil that produces food and materials, to clean water and clean air, to providing housing for the growing population, or to give beautiful and accessible greenspaces that support mental and physical wellbeing. Every business uses water, has a supply chain that impacts the landscape, and employs people who breath air and benefit from green space whether in an urban context or in the countryside. The protection and development of healthy ecosystems is essential, and every business can participate in this.
