Marine Conservation: Who Pays? NSMC Seminar, Networking Event, and Lunch 13th September 2012 – 13:00 to 17:30 University of East Anglia, London Campus.
Marine conservation is critical to both the environment and the economy and somehow we must pay for the protection and rescue of this crucial resource. The traditional model of ‘the tax payer pays’ is no longer a viable solution. Marine Conservation: Who Pays? will focus on these topics and the scale of their importance.
The event will be chaired by Roger Bright, recently retired Chief Executive of Crown Estate, and will include lunch and a Q & A session with the panel of speakers. There will be a charge for the event which will include lunch and entry.
We are pleased to announce that our programme for the event will include speakers from Marine Planning Consultants, University of East Anglia, Seabed Users Development Group, E3G, Eftc, and the National Trust.
