How London is shifting the nature debate

Interesting thoughts on valuation of the natural environment and how it links / resonates with people. Sutton Nature Conservation Volunteers will be, in part, discussing such themes on Tuesday 23 Feb at our next meeting, where we will hear from Nick Dovey of Sutton Council about MySutton and what message(s) we may wish for Nick to promote in the interactive MySutton space. We hope that you will join us to listen and think on what Nick says and how we can all work to promote the value of nature. Get in touch for more details sncvvolunteers@hotmail.co.uk
