The full title of the conference is: "Identifying the opportunities for and threats to the British Uplands: what are the policy and research priorities?". More information
Key aims are to:
- Facilitate an evidence-based discussion on the future of the British uplands in what can be a contentious policy and management topic;
- Establish the viewpoints of important stakeholders regarding the future of the uplands post-Brexit;
- Identify the top policy and research questions by collecting data through facilitated discussion and to determine where there is consensus; and
- Use the workshop data to guide future BES policy work in the British uplands (potentially a first publication immediately post-workshop), and to consider a future event.
