Home » Free Webinar – Nature Regeneration: bringing nature back from the brink

Join us for the next in our series of free online webinars. On 11 November, CAT lecturer Tom Barker will explore what nature regeneration means, how it can be done, and the benefits it could have across all sectors of society.

This Autumn’s free webinars feature our Graduate School lecturers and Short Course tutors, introducing a wide range of sustainability topics, from energy and water provision to how we can all help create a zero carbon Britain. 

The role of nature

Regenerating nature could be the best means we have for preventing disastrous climate change. But what do we mean by the term ‘regenerating nature’, and how can it be done? 

Join CAT lecturer Tom Barker to explore nature regeneration and the far-reaching implications it could have for agriculture, land-use, biodiversity and the global economy. See current and past examples and discover the potential nature regeneration has to create sustainable societies across the globe.
