Biodiversity in Leeds - Challenges and Success image #1

This workshop presentation is from the “Challenging Connections” EAUC Annual Conference 2015, presented by Michael Howroyd, Sustainability Projects Co-ordinator from The University of Leeds and falls under the Partnerships and Engagement Conference Stream. 

In 2011, in the middle of the largest capital programme the University has seen since the 1960s, we launched our first biodiversity action plan. In the years since this launch, we have established a well reputed biodiversity group, developed close links with local community action groups and become actively engaged with our estates capital, refurbishment and grounds teams. Going forward, our new ‘biodiversity standard’ will aim to make us an exemplar of urban biodiversity that improves our biodiversity, meets the requirements of all campus users, increases engagement and uses the campus as a living laboratory for learning, teaching and research.
